Lee’s Summit, MO (March 10, 2022) – Just after 2 a.m., on March 8, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 470.
Reports provided by MSHP Trooper A. D. Lindgren show that a 2019 Mazda CX-5 and a 2020 International were involved in a collision near mile marker 11.2 on the southbound side of Interstate 470.
The incident resulted in injuries. EMS transported both 24-year-old Trevor Jackson and 51-year-old Burke Wilburn to Centerpoint Medical Center for further treatment and evaluation.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Trevor Jackson and Burke Wilburn at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Every day, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of innocent people across our state. In countless instances, victims require emergency medical attention due to their injuries. Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.
In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are speeding
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
- Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects
These and other acts of negligence often lead to life-altering crashes that force victims out of work for several weeks. Not only do victims suffer but their families are often forced to endure financial strains as well. When victims are harmed in accidents, due to the negligence of others, they often have legal options available to help them recover.
