Cabool, MO (November 19, 2022) – A young child was injured as a result of a traffic accident that took place in Texas County. The crash was reported just after 4:10 p.m. on November 18.
According to preliminary investigations provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado stopped to make a left turn onto Orchard Road from US Highway 63. The driver of a 2022 Toyota Corolla failed to notice that the Chevrolet stopped. As a result, the Toyota crashed into the rear of the Silverado.
An 11-year-old female in the Chevrolet suffered injuries in the crash. She was transported to Texas County Memorial Hospital, where she underwent treatment for her injuries.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
We hope the girl injured in this accident recovers quickly.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle accidents can happen in an instant. Unfortunately, there are many instances where people are left with severe injuries as a result of these accidents. Here in Missouri, we see many people involved in rear-end accidents as a result of negligent drivers.
One of the most common causes of rear-end collisions in our state is following too closely. When drivers follow too closely the vehicles in front of them, they don’t give themselves enough time to react if the car in front of them applies the brakes suddenly. This can lead to a rear-end collision, even if both of the involved vehicles are driving at a relatively low speed.
Other common causes of rear-end collisions include distracted driving, intoxication, drowsy driving, and weather conditions. Drivers who are distracted may not see the car in front of them braking in time. Intoxicated drivers may have impaired vision and reaction times, making it more difficult to avoid a rear-end collision. Drowsy driving can also lead to impaired vision and reaction times, making it more difficult to avoid a rear-end collision. Poor weather conditions can make it more difficult to see the brake lights of the car in front of you or make it more difficult to stop your own car in time.
