Car Accidents in Missouri

Franklin, MO – Four Injured in Auto Accident on Route M near West Villa Ridge RdMotor vehicle accidents continue to be a leading cause of injuries and death in the state of Missouri, despite the number of laws in place to protect motorists. Unfortunately, there are many cases where people engage in negligent and reckless driving practices.

Speeding is one of the most common contributing factors to car accidents, not just in Missouri but across the United States. Speeding makes it more difficult for a driver to control their vehicle and increases the likelihood of an accident.

Impaired driving is another major factor in car accidents. Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol decreases reaction time and impairs judgment. This can lead to dangerous decisions on the road and, ultimately, an accident.

Finally, weather conditions can also play a role in car accidents. Poor visibility or slick roads can make it difficult for a driver to control their vehicle and can lead to accidents.
