O’Fallon, MO (October 26, 2021) – Two people were transported to area hospitals with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the O’Fallon area on Monday afternoon.
At around 3:40 p.m., on October 25, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Route P.
Reports from MSHP Trooper D. L. Holliday show that a 2005 Kia Optima was traveling south on Koch Road. As the vehicle approached the area of Route P, it collided with a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee that was traveling westbound on the roadway. Both vehicles suffered extensive damage and were towed from the scene by Superior Towing.
Tow driver of the Kia, a 15-year-old female, and the driver of the Jeep, 58-year-old Anastasia Bross, were both transported to SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital Lake St. Louis for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Anastasia Bross and the teen injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Crashes in Missouri impact the lives of more than 1,000 people every week. Although we hope that every person involved in a collision only faces minor disruptions, there are tens of thousands of people left with severe and debilitating injuries after year. Many injured victims have to deal with traumatic brain injuries, compound fractures, and even internal organ damages. These and other physical injuries can make it extremely difficult for victims to work. They can also dramatically impact a victim’s quality of life.
The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle accidents impact more than just the mental and physical health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well. Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of an O’Fallon car accident attorney as soon as possible.
