Bethany, MO (January 5, 2022) – One woman was left with moderate injuries following a collision in Harrison County on Tuesday afternoon. Just before 4 p.m., on January 4, emergency crews were requested on-site at a crash on Interstate 35.
Reports from authorities show that a 2016 Mazda and a 2014 Ram 3500 with a towed unit were both traveling south on Interstate 35 when they became involved in a collision near mile marker 2.
A passenger in the Mazda, identified as 66-year-old Shannon Barousse, was injured in the crash. She was transported to Harrison County Community Hospital for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Shannon Barousse at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Reports provided by the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that the state of Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of people being involved in fatal collisions. Between 2012 and 2014, more than 2,300 people lost their lives in accidents throughout the state. More than 55,000 more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
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. 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. Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after.
When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a Bethany car accident attorney as soon as possible.
