Rockaway Beach, MO (October 25, 2021) – One man has lost his life following an accident on Saturday evening in Taney County. At around 10 p.m., on October 23, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a crash on Route EE required assistance.
Reports from MSHP Trooper C.D. O’Hara show that a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire was traveling on Route EE in Rockaway Beach when it became involved in a collision. The vehicle proceeded off the side of the roadway and overturned.
The passenger of the vehicle, 54-year-old Edward Cummins, was ejected from the vehicle. Emergency crews responded to the scene to render aid to the victim. However, he passed away at the scene.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Edward Cummins. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
Fatal Car Accidents in Missouri
Rollover accidents often cause severe damage to vehicles while leaving victims with catastrophic injuries. When people are ejected from the vehicles as they overturn, the chances of fatal injuries are significantly increased. Although most victims are left with debilitating injuries that require medical attention, some victims are unable to recover. Instead, they end up passing away as a result of injuries sustained in accidents caused by reckless drivers. Each year, more than 1,000 people lose their lives in auto accidents across the state of Missouri. In many instances, people are riding in vehicles that roll over.
Not only are families impacted by the emotions following the loss, but they often face towering medical bills, funeral expenses, and a variety of other financial impacts.
