Buffalo, MO (October 31, 2021) – A woman and a teenaged male were both hospitalized with injuries following a motor vehicle accident on Saturday afternoon in Dallas County.
At around 1:35 p.m., on October 30, a 2005 Ford Ranger was traveling on Neill Road when it crashed into a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox just three miles southwest of Buffalo.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured. A 15-year-old male was transported to Mercy Hospital in Springfield for care. The driver of the Chevrolet, 75-year-old Janice Hicks, was transported to CMH Bolivar for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Janice Hicks and the teen injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, more than 55,000 people are hurt in crashes throughout the state of Missouri. Here in Wilson Township, we see many victims hospitalized with injuries that impact their health and wellbeing. Broken arms, burn injuries, and evening internal organ damages are incredibly painful injuries. They are also very costly to treat.
People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work. 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.
In cases where people sustain injuries in crashes, due to the negligence of other motorists, they are often able to recover financial compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and various other damages. Working with a trusted and competent car accident lawyer in Buffalo can help to ensure you are able to get the maximum amount of compensation available to you.
