St Joseph, MO (January 12, 2022) – Two people were transported to area hospitals for the treatment of injuries following a motorcycle crash in Buchanan County on Tuesday evening. Just after 7:15 p.m., on January 11, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a collision on Bluff Road.
Reports from MSHP Cpl. J. D. Maudlin show that a 2008 Jeep Wrangler and a 2012 Harley Davidson collided head-on on Bluff Road just north of Contrary Creek.
The crash left both drivers injured. EMS transported 43-year-old Catherine Jacobs and 63-year-old David Kretzer to Mosaic Life Care for treatment.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Catherine Jacobs and David Kretzer at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Auto Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle accidents in the state of Missouri leave tens of thousands of victims with injuries each year. In many cases, those harmed are rushed from the scene of their accidents to local hospitals for emergency medical care. After going through emergency surgery, many victims have to spend weeks off work to recover. When motorcyclists are involved in crashes, the chances of suffering severe injuries are dramatically increased. These victims do not have adequate protection during accidents. As a result, they are more likely to suffer severe head trauma, broken bones, and other painful injuries.
In many cases, victims are left with painful injuries that require both immediate and long-term care. Suffering spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even back injuries can result in the need of long-term care. Many people who suffer severe injuries are forced out of work indefinitely.
In some instances, victims may have legal options available to help them move forward. Following your accident, you can benefit greatly by reaching out to a St Joseph motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation to help cover the financial burdens you face.
