Orrick, MO (March 28, 2022) – An automobile accident reported in Ray County on Sunday evening ended in injuries. Just before 4:30 p.m., on March 27, emergency crews were requested on-site at a motor vehicle accident on Missouri State Route 210.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 2018 Ford and a 1995 Mercedes were involved in a collision on Missouri State Route 210 just east of Pendleton Road. The incident resulted in both vehicles being totaled. The two vehicles were towed from the scene.
Police and firefighters remained on-site for an extended period as they worked to clear the roadway.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured. 49-year-old Paul Odell was treated at the scene for undisclosed injuries. The second driver, 62-year-old Michael Tourney, was transported by Ray County EMS to North Kansas Hospital for the treatment of serious injuries.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Paul Odell and Michael Tourney at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can have a life-altering impact on a victim. In many cases, people are left with severe injuries that negatively impact their health and wellbeing. Although most motorists are careful while traveling throughout our state, we see a significant number of people hurt in accidents due to the negligence of others. In fact, some form of negligence plays a role in nearly 80% of crashes every year in our state.
Some of the most common causes of collisions include:
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while distracted by cellphones or other objects
- Driving while engaging in reckless behaviors (speeding, failing to yield the right of way, disregarding traffic control devices, etc.)
- Vehicle part malfunctions and defects
When victims are harmed in accidents, they often have legal options available to help them move forward. It is important that they seek the legal guidance of an Orrick car accident attorney as soon as possible.
