Franklin, MO (July 25, 2022) – A crash reported on Saturday in Franklin County sent one man to a local hospital with serious injuries. At around 5:08 p.m., on July 23, emergency personnel received a request for assistance on-site at a crash on Interstate 44.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2011 Toyota tundra and a 2021 Mitsubishi outlander collided on the eastbound side of Interstate 44 near mile marker 239.4. Two tow trucks were dispatched to the scene to remove the damaged vehicles from the roadway.
The driver of the Toyota, 20-year-old Jack Porter, suffered serious injuries in the crash. Porter, who is from Rolla, Missouri, was transported by St. Clair Ambulance District to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, for emergency medical treatment.
The crash is under investigation at this time by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Our thoughts are with Jack Porter at this time.

Pursuing a personal injury case after being harmed in an accident can help you get money to cover various damages you face. Including:
Lost Wages: people who are harmed as a result of crashes often have to take extensive time off work to recover. Many people are unable to earn an income while going through the recovery process. You may be entitled to compensation for all of the lost wages you suffered.
Medical costs: victims of motor vehicle crashes have to go through extensive medical treatment. You may be entitled to compensation for all of the costs of surgery, hospitalization, and long-term care that you require for your injuries.
Your Suffering: victims of auto accidents often struggle to move forward. For this reason, victims are entitled to compensation for non-economic damages like mental anguish and physical pain and suffering.
