Franklin, MO (April 1, 2022) – A truck accident reported in the Franklin area sent one person to a local hospital with injuries. At around 4:20 p.m., on March 30, emergency crews were requested on-site at a crash on Interstate 44.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was involved in a collision with a 2019 International Harvester Conventional. Both vehicles were left with moderate damage as a result of the incident.
The driver of the Chevrolet, 62-year-old Debbie Fangers, was transported to Mercy Hospital Washington by Meramec ambulance for emergency care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Debbie Fangers at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Some of the most common factors contributing to auto accidents in our state include:
- Driving while impaired
- Driving while distracted
- Failing to yield the right of way to others
These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. Many victims require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine.
People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families. To make the struggle even worse, towering medical bills start rolling in immediately. 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 Franklin car accident attorney as soon as possible.
