Boone, MO (May 17, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident took place in Boone on Saturday evening that left a man and woman injured. At around 11:25 p.m., on May 14, calls for assistance came in surrounding an auto accident on US Highway 63.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol indicate that a 2015 Ford F-150 was traveling on the northbound side of US Highway 63 when it became involved in an accident with a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck just north of Mt Pleasant Road.
The incident left both vehicles with significant damage requiring them to be towed from the scene.
EMS rendered aid to 29-year-old Andrea Sachs and 41-year-old Raphael Garcia on-site. Both victims were then transported to University Hospital for further care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Andrea Sachs and Raphael Garcia at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Every year, we see tens of thousands of people hurt in auto accidents in Missouri. In many instances, these crashes can be attributed to negligence. Some of the most common causes of crashes we see include:
Speeding: When drivers travel above the posted speed limits, they often have a difficult time controlling their vehicles. This is especially true during inclement weather conditions while traveling along curved roadways, and while approaching traffic jams.
Failing to yield: When drivers are not considerate of other people sharing the road, they place them at risk of being harmed. Unfortunately, we see a significant number of people injured as a result of drivers who fail to yield the right of way to others.
Running red lights: When drivers approach intersections, it is imperative that they maintain control over their vehicles. Drivers that run red lights place the lives of others passing through the intersection at serious risk of being harmed.
When people are hurt in crashes as a result of these or other acts of negligence, injured parties may have legal options available to help them move forward. A car accident lawyer in Boone can provide you with invaluable services to ensure you are able to get justice.
