Lincoln, MO (March 21, 2022) – Three people, including one child, were all left with serious injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Lincoln on Friday evening, March 18.
Just before 10:30 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was requested on-site at a crash on Missouri State Route 47.
Reports from MSHP Trooper Bochucinski show that a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 was traveling west on Missouri State Route 47 when it collided with an eastbound 2014 Ford Edge just east of Anna Avenue.
The drivers of both vehicles, identified as 37-year-old Jonathan Moyer and 46-year-old Jason Butler, and a 14-year-old female passenger in the Dodge were all injured in the crash. All three victims were transported by Lincoln County Ambulance District to Mercy Hospital in St Louis for further care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Jonathan Moyer, Jason Butler, and the girl injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
Not being able to work while being overwhelmed with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills not only impacts victims but their families as well. It does not seem right that victims who are injured in accidents as a result of the actions of others are forced to spend substantial amounts of money on treatment.
When victims are injured in accidents resulting from the negligence of other motorists, it is important that they seek legal guidance as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of care and other expenses moving forward. A responsive and effective car accident attorney in Lincoln can help to explain your legal rights as a victim to an accident.
