Callaway, MO (February 23, 2022) – One person was left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Callaway on Sunday morning, February 20. At around 3:40 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 70.

Reports from local authorities show that a 2005 Lincoln Towncar was traveling in the right lane on westbound Interstate 70. For unknown reasons, the vehicle went off the right side of the roadway and overcorrected. The Lincoln then re-entered the roadway and struck a 2017 Dodge Ram 2500.

One person involved in the accident, 61-year-old Farris Osborne, sustained injuries. Osborne was transported to Callaway Community Hospital by EMS for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Farris Osborne at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Callaway, MO – One Man Injured in MVA on I-70 near MM 154.6Motor vehicle accidents in the state of Missouri leave tens of thousands of people injured each year. Although most crashes result in minor injuries, a substantial number of victims require emergency medical care and long-term treatment as well.

Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.

In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:

  • Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are speeding
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
  • Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects

These and other acts of negligence often lead to life-altering crashes that force victims out of work for several weeks.
