Washington Township, MO (November 18, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Osage County left a man and woman injured. At around 5 p.m., on November 16, calls for assistance came in surrounding an accident on US Highway 63.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper B. F. Baker show that a 1999 Chevrolet S10, a 1998 Chevrolet S10, and a 2011 Toyota Versa were all involved in a crash on US Highway 63 just one mile south of US Highway 50.
27-year-old Jonathan Wood, who was driving the 1998 Chevrolet, and 54-year-old Laura Baumhoer, who was a passenger in the Toyota, were both injured. The two victims were transported to Capital Region Hospital for further care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Laura Baumhoer and Jonathan Wood at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Many victims require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine. Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after.
People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only do are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families.
Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. In many cases, victims are harmed in crashes due to the negligence of others. Some of the most common factors contributing to auto accidents in our state include:
- Driving while distracted
- Failing to yield the right of way to others
- Driving while impaired
When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Washington Township car accident attorney as soon as possible.
