Branson, MO (January 16, 2022) – A man and a woman were both left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Taney County on Saturday afternoon. At around 2:35 p.m., on January 15, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Missouri State Highway 248.
Reports show that a 2015 Mazda 3 crashed into the rear of a 1995 Honda Civic just one mile north of Branson.
Two people in the Honda were injured. EMS transported 18-year-old Elijah Lenharth and 18-year-old Sydney Mayab to Cox Hospital in Branson for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Elijah Lenharth and Sydney Mayab at this time. We hope for their 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. Thousands more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
In many cases, victims are left with painful injuries from accidents caused by drunk drivers, distracted drivers, and those who choose to engage in reckless driving actions. These and other negligent actions leave countless innocent parties with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other injuries that demand both immediate and long-term medical care.
