Carl Junction, MO (February 20, 2022) – Authorities responded to the scene of an auto accident in Jasper County that left one person injured. At around 2:50 p.m., on February 16, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Missouri State Highway YY.
Reports from authorities show that a collision between a 2000 Ford Mustang and a 2014 Ford F-150 took place on State Highway YY just three miles northwest of Carl Junction.
The incident resulted in injuries. The driver of the F-150, 23-year-old Joshua Hofheins, was transported to Mercy Joplin for emergency medical care.

Car Accidents in Missouri
Reports provided by the Missouri State Department of Public Safety demonstrate that more than 55,000 people are hurt in auto collisions throughout our state each year. Although many crashes resolve with only minor injuries, thousands of victims are hospitalized with life-threatening injuries that require emergency and ongoing care.
Not being able to work while being overwhelmed with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills not only impacts victims but their families as well. It does not seem right that victims who are injured in accidents as a result of the actions of others are forced to spend substantial amounts of money on treatment.
When people suffer injuries in auto accidents, those harmed are able to pursue legal actions to collect compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward. Working with a knowledgeable and aggressive car accident attorney in the Carl Junction area after your accident can greatly improve your chances of recovering.
