St Louis, MO (March 8, 2022) – One person was transported to a local hospital with injuries following an automobile accident in the St Louis area on Sunday morning, March 6.
At around 3:40 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of an auto accident on Interstate 55.
Reports from MSHP show that a 2002 Ford Taurus was traveling in the wrong way on southbound Interstate 55. As a result, it collided with a 2008 Pontiac G6 head-on near Reavis Barracks Road.
The driver of the Pontiac, 52-year-old Anthony Gentle, sustained injuries as a result of the motor vehicle accident. He was transported to Mercy Hospital South for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Anthony Gentle at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of thousands of people across our state. Not only do people involved in collisions have their lives disrupted, but they are often left with significant financial, mental, and physical consequences as well.
In many cases, victims sustain injuries that require extensive medical treatment. When victims break their bones or suffer traumatic head or neck injuries, they often need multiple surgeries and have to spend months off their feet or go to therapy.
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.
Rather than moving forward after an accident alone, victims should consult with a responsive car accident attorney in St Louis who can help educate them with regards to legal options available and help them to exercise their rights and collect the compensation they need and deserve.
