Roark Township, MO (October 25, 2021) – A motorcycle crash reported in Roark Township left one man injured on Friday afternoon, October 22. At around 2:16 p.m., authorities were notified that a crash took place on Missouri State Highway 100 that required assistance.
Reports from authorities indicate that a 2008 Kawasaki motorcycle, operated by 35-year-old Michael Tyree, was traveling through the area of Missouri State Highway 100 and Old Iron Road. For unknown reasons, a 2015 Buick Enclave, operated by 56-year-old David Smith, turned in front of the vehicle. As a result, the motorcycle and the Buick collided.
The impact of the crash sent the motorcycle off the road where it overturned into a creek.
Tyree sustained serious injuries in the accident. He was rushed to Mercy Hospital in Creve Couer, Missouri for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Michael Tyree at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri
Motorcycle accidents across the United States leave tens of thousands of people injured each year. In Missouri, we see many people harmed in these accidents due to the negligence of other drivers. Some of the leading causes of motorcycle collisions include speeding, failing to yield the right of way, and blind-spot collisions.
Given the fact that most motorcyclists have little more than helmets to protect them, riders are often left with severe injuries that require prolonged care. We see thousands of riders left with severe compound fractures, paralyzed from spinal cord injuries, and suffer irreversible consequences from traumatic brain injuries.
Many people who are harmed in accidents are hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine. 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 a Roark Township motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible.
