Unionville, MO (October 30, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident in Putnam County left two people injured, according to reports. At around 3 p.m., on October 26, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was requested on-site at a crash on Missouri State Route 5.
Reports from MSHP Trooper Schieferdecker show that a 2011 Jeep Cherokee was traveling north on Missouri Route 5 when it collided with a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck just south of Highway 136.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured. 76-year-old Allen Foster, who was driving the Dodge, and 83-year-old Marvin Logan, who was driving the Jeep, were both transported to Putnam County Memorial Hospital for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Marvin Logan and Allen Foster at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Reports provided by the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that the state of Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of people being involved in fatal collisions. Between 2012 and 2014, more than 2,300 people lost their lives in accidents throughout the state. More than 55,000 more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents force victims into area hospitals.
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.
When victims are injured in accidents resulting from the negligence of other motorists, it is important that they seek legal guidance as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of care and other expenses moving forward. A responsive and effective car accident attorney in Missouri can help to explain your legal rights as a victim of an accident.
