Kirbyville, MO (January 8, 2022) – One man was left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Taney County on Friday afternoon, January 7. At around 2:35 p.m., authorities were called to provide assistance on-site at a crash on Missouri State Highway 76.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2001 Ford Ranger and a 2019 Mercedes Metris were involved in a crash on Missouri State Highway 76, just one mile west of Kirbyville.
The driver of the Ford, 18-year-old Colton Long, sustained injuries in the accident. Long was transported by ambulance to Cox Branson for care.
At this time, the crash remains under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Our thoughts are with Colton Long at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
We see tens of thousands of people injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Missouri due to the negligence of other drivers. 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.
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 injured in accidents, those harmed are able to pursue legal actions to obtain compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward. Working with a knowledgeable and aggressive car accident attorney in the Kirbyville area after your accident can greatly improve your chances of recovering.
