Morgan, MO (May 17, 2022) – Two people were left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in the Morgan area on Saturday evening, May 14. At around 4:40 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on US Highway 50.
Reports from MSHP Trooper E.P. Volkart show that a 2016 Dodge Charger crashed into the rear-end of a 2017 Nissan Rogue as the Nissan waited to make a left turn at the intersection of US Highway 50 and Route A.
Two people in the Nissan were injured. EMS rendered aid to 47-year-old Candy Casteel and 68-year-old Cather Weathers. The victims were then transported to the University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia, Missouri for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Candy Casteel and Cathy Weathers at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be incredibly challenging. There are many instances where people suffer from debilitating injuries that make it difficult even to perform a simple task. In Missouri, we see thousands of people suffer from spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and other injuries each year.
We see many people who are harmed in accidents due to the negligence of others. Many crashes are a result of:
- Drivers who operate their vehicles while impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who fail to yield to others
- Drivers who run red lights and pass stop signs at intersections
- Drivers who use their cell phones to text or talk
