Jefferson, MO (June 9, 2022) – Authorities were dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the Jefferson area that sent two women to area hospitals with injuries. At around 10:10 a.m., on June 3, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a collision had taken place on Missouri State Route 30.

Reports provided by authority show that a 2015 Ford Fusion was making a left turn onto High Ridge Boulevard from Missouri State Route 30. For unknown reasons, the vehicle collided with a 2013 Ford Taurus. The impact of the crash caused the Fusion to skid and rotate clockwise. The fusion then struck a 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche.

Two people involved in the car sustained moderate injuries. The victims, 28-year-old Melissa Hozain and 30-year-old Lauren Traiteur were both transported by North Jefferson County ambulance to Mercy Hospital South for emergency medical care.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Jefferson, MO – Melissa Hozain & Lauren Traiteur Injured in MVA on MO-30 near High Ridge BlvdMotor vehicle accidents take place far too often in Missouri. In fact, tens of thousands of people are hospitalized every year with injuries. We see many accidents take place due to drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. Some of the leading causes of crashes in our state include:

  • drivers who are under the influence of alcohol
  • motorists who are impaired by drugs
  • drivers who are distracted by their cell phones and other objects
  • drivers who run red lights and pass stop signs
  • drivers who fail to yield to others

When innocent people share the road with reckless and negligent actors, they run the risk of suffering severe injuries due to their actions. Unfortunately, people who are involved in accidents are often left with severe injuries that require medical care. We see many people with severe injuries like spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and traumatic brain injuries as a result of their accidents.
