Buffalo, MO (February 1, 2022) – One woman was transported to a local hospital with injuries following a two-vehicle accident in Dallas County. Just before 7:40 p.m., on January 30, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at an accident on Missouri State Route 73.
Reports from authorities show that a 2008 Mazda 3 overcorrected while traveling on Missouri State Route 73. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2015 Chevrolet Equinox just ½ mile north of Buffalo. The Chevrolet then went off the right side of the road and overturned.
The driver of the Chevrolet, 39-year-old Sarah Potter, sustained moderate injuries in the crash. Potter was rushed to Mercy Hospital in Springfield for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Sarah Potter at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, auto wrecks impact the lives of thousands of victims and families across our state. Not only do people involved in collisions have their lives disrupted, but they are often left with significant financial, mental, and physical consequences as well. 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.
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.
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. 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 Buffalo car accident attorney as soon as possible.
