Jefferson, MO (February 15, 2022) – One man was transported to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries following a motor vehicle accident on Sunday morning in Jefferson.
At around 11:06 a.m., on February 13, emergency crews were notified that a crash took place on US Highway 67.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper T.W. Brewer show that a collision between a 2015 Ford Focus and a second vehicle occurred on the northbound side of US Highway 67 just south of Flucom Road.
The driver of the Ford, 51-year-old Steven Villarreal, sustained injuries in the crash. Villarreal was transported to Mercy Jefferson Hospital for the treatment of injuries.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Steven Villarreal at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of thousands of people 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.
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 victims are harmed in accidents as a result of other motorists, our state allows them to file legal claims against wrongdoers to recover compensation for the financial burdens they endure. Victims can benefit immensely by consulting with a car accident attorney in Jefferson who is well-versed in personal injury laws in our state.
