Monett, MO – Carol Stockton & Child Injured in Auto Accident on County Rd 1070A vehicle crash can potentially disrupt your life forever. Unfortunately, we see many people in our state left with severe injuries following auto accidents every day. In some instances, vehicles may cross over the center of the roadway and strike other vehicles head-on.

There are a number of reasons why vehicles cross over the center line of the roadway and crash into other vehicles. One of the most common reasons is driver distraction. With more and more motorists using phones and other electronic devices while driving, it’s no surprise that this has become a leading cause of accidents.

Other causes of crossover accidents include intoxication (either from alcohol or drugs), falling asleep at the wheel, road rage, and weather conditions. In some cases, a mechanical issue with the vehicle itself can cause it to veer into oncoming traffic.

Whatever the cause, these types of crashes are often very serious, as they typically involve head-on collisions.
