Kansas City, MO (July 23, 2022) – A vehicle collision reported in Jackson County left three people injured. Just before 11:10 p.m., on July 20, emergency crews were notified that a crash took place on Missouri State Route 350 that required assistance.
Missouri State Highway Patrol reports indicate that a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu swerved to avoid hitting a deer on Missouri State Route 350 eastbound, in the area just east of Colbern Road. As a result, the Chevrolet collided with a 2009 Chevrolet HHR.
Three people involved in the crash were injured. Lee Summit Fire EMS treated 32-year-old Melissa Abbott, 32-year-old Bryson Washington, and 36-year-old Krystal King at the scene of the accident. The three victims were then transported to St. Joseph Medical Center for further treatment and evaluation.
The crash is currently under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Our thoughts are with Melissa Abbott, Bryson Washington, and Krystal King at this time.
Car Accidents in Missouri
The state of Missouri is a “fault” state when it comes to motor vehicle accidents. This essentially means that the person who caused the accident is also responsible for any of the resulting damages. From a practical standpoint, the driver who is at fault’s insurance company will be responsible for covering any of the losses, up to the limits of the policy.
Although we want to believe that it is a simple process to recover the compensation owed to you, insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid paying you the money you need and deserve.
