St Louis, MO (April 4, 2022) – One woman was left seriously injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in the St Louis area on Sunday afternoon, April 3. At around 12:37 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Highway 367.
Reports provided by MSHP show that an unknown vehicle crashed into a 2012 Nissan Altima on Highway 367 in the area near Interstate 270. The impact of the crash caused the Nissan to crash into a 2016 Toyota Corolla.
The driver of the Toyota, 62-year-old Amanda Hughes, sustained serious injuries in the crash. She was rushed to SSM Health DePaul Hospital for emergency medical care by Christian Northeast EMS.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Amanda Hughes at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of thousands of people across our state. People involved in collisions have their lives disrupted, but they are often left with significant financial, mental, and physical consequences. In many cases, victims sustain injuries that require extensive medical treatment. When victims break their bones or suffer traumatic head or neck injuries, they often need multiple surgeries and have to spend months off their feet or go to therapy.
Not being able to work while being overwhelmed with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills impacts victims and their families. It does not seem right that victims who are injured in accidents as a result of the actions of others are forced to spend substantial amounts of money on treatment.
Rather than moving forward after an accident alone, victims should consult with a responsive car accident attorney in St Louis who can help educate them with regards to legal options available and help them to exercise their rights and collect the compensation they need and deserve.
