Sumner, MO (February 9, 2022) – One teen was left injured as a result of a traffic-related incident in Chariton County on Monday afternoon, February 7. Just after 2:50 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to a crash on Missouri State Route 139.

One person involved in the crash, a 16-year-old female, suffered moderate injuries in the accident. The teen was transported by Linn County ambulance to Pershing Memorial Hospital for emergency medical treatment.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victim who was injured in this accident. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, more than 1,000 people lose their lives in traffic-related incidents across the state of Missouri. Tens of thousands of other people are left with injuries that require some form of medical care. 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. People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work.
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. Rather than moving forward after an accident alone, victims should consult with a responsive car accident attorney in Sumner who can help educate them with regards to legal options available and help them to exercise their rights and collect the compensation they need and deserve.
