Butler, MO – Auto Accident Reported 0n I-49 near MO-58 Leaves Samantha Sendejas InjuredAuto accidents occur frequently in Missouri that have life-changing consequences for those involved. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are caused by drivers who are negligent. When drivers fail to operate their vehicles in a responsible manner, they cause harm to others.

Distractions are one of the most common factors in collisions across our state. There are many distractions that can take a driver’s attention away from the road, including passengers, music, and cell phones. Even something as simple as daydreaming can be a distraction. Running red lights and failing to yield are two of the most common causes of car accidents.

Cell phones are one of the most common distractions for drivers. It is estimated that 1 in 4 car accidents in the United States is caused by texting while driving. Texting takes a driver’s eyes off the road. Even a moment of distraction is enough to cause a severe accident.

Distractions, running red lights, and failing to yield are all preventable if drivers would take more care while behind the wheel. If you are driving, make sure to put your safety and the safety of others first by paying attention to the road and being cautious at all times.
