Jefferson County, MO (November 15, 2022) – A traffic accident took place in Jefferson County on Monday morning that left two people injured. On November 14, calls for assistance came in surrounding a traffic accident on Missouri State Route 141.
According to local law enforcement, 26-year-old Andrea Pagano was driving a 2017 Mazda 6 on Missouri State Route 141 when her vehicle was struck by a 2008 Toyota RAV4 near Springdale Lane. The impact of the crash caused the Toyota to go off the roadway and strike a tree. The Mazda traveled off the roadway and collided with a traffic signal base.
Pagano and the Toyota’s driver, 74-year-old JoAnn Hunt, both suffered injuries in the crash. The two victims were rushed to Mercy Hospital South for the treatment of serious injuries.
The crash remains under investigation at this time.
We hope JoAnn Hunt and Andrea Pagano recover quickly after this crash.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Vehicle crashes occur daily in Missouri that result in significant injuries for those involved. Regrettably, there are many cases where vehicles strike other objects after colliding with cars. In Missouri, when vehicles strike other objects, people, or buildings after colliding with other cars, it is referred to as a secondary collision.
There are several factors that contribute to secondary collisions. One is the speed at which the vehicles were going when they collided. The faster the vehicles are going, the more likely it is that they will strike another object after the initial impact.
Although this type of crash may not seem as serious as a head-on collision between two vehicles, it can still cause significant damage and injuries.
