Raymore, MO (January 2, 2022) – A crash reported in Cass County left one woman injured. At around 4:10 p.m., on January 1, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on Interstate 49.
Reports from MSHP Trooper T. L. Wallace show that a 2011 Toyota Rav4 was stopped from a previous crash on the northbound side of Interstate 49. As the driver of a 2014 Chevrolet Malibu approached the vehicle, the driver lost control. As a result, the Chevrolet crashed into the Toyota just south of North Cass Parkway.
One person involved in the crash was injured. EMS transported 31-year-old Asha McKinney to Belton Regional Medical Center for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Asha McKinney at this time. We hope for his 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.
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 Raymore car accident attorney as soon as possible.
