Fatal Car Accidents in Missouri

Columbia, MO – One Killed in Auto Accident on East Broadway near US-63 InterchangeAlthough driving is generally a safe activity to be involved in, we see many people die as a result of traffic collisions here in the state of Missouri. Year after year, hundreds of families are negatively affected by vehicle collisions that take the lives of their loved ones. In many cases, these accidents are caused by negligence. Some of the leading factors and fatal collisions include:

  • Inexperienced drivers: This is often the case with teenage drivers who are still learning the rules of the road. They may not yet have the skills or knowledge to safely operate a vehicle.
  • Impaired drivers: Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol are much more likely to cause an accident that leads to death.
  • Distracted driving: Drivers who are distracted by their cell phones, GPS devices, or other passengers in the car are also more likely to cause an accident.
  • Reckless driving: aggressive or speeding drivers put themselves and others at risk for serious injury or death.
