Hannibal, MO – Michael Owens Injured in Motorcycle Crash on MO-79 near River Hills RdEvery year, tens of thousands of people allow for significant injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents across the state of Missouri. These crashes are often caused by drivers who choose to engage in reckless and negligent actions. Some of the leading causes of collisions that we see in our state include:

  • drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol while behind the wheel
  • drivers who speed or drive too fast for road conditions and in inclement weather
