Two people in the Toyota, 80-year-old Alita Carlyle and 80-year-old David Carlyle, both of Elsberry, Missouri, were seriously injured. The two victims were transported by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, for further care.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Lincoln, MO - Alita Carlyle and David Carlyle Injured in Two-Vehicle Wreck on US-61 near Route KKEach year, car crashes in the state of Missouri have a devastating impact on the lives of those involved. Unfortunately, thousands of people end up being hospitalized with serious injuries that affect their lives forever. Unfortunately, rear-end accidents take place far too often, leaving countless people with significant injuries. There are several reasons why these accidents take place. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • Driver distraction: Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of all types of accidents, and rear-end collisions are no different. Texting, talking on the phone, eating, drinking, and other forms of distracted driving can all lead to a rear-end accident.
  • Driving under the influence: Drugs and alcohol severely impair the ability of drivers to operate vehicles safely. When drivers get behind the wheel while impaired, they put themselves and others at risk for an accident.
  • Reckless driving: Speeding, following too closely, weaving between lanes, and other forms of reckless driving are all dangerous behaviors that can lead to a rear-end collision.
