Lincoln, MO (November 3, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident took place in the Lincoln area that resulted in injuries, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. On November 1, officials were summoned to a crash that occurred on Route C.
According to law enforcement, just before 4:20 p.m., the driver of a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado attempted to make a left turn onto Route OO from Route C. As the vehicle entered the intersection, it collided with a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze. The impact of the crash sent the Chevrolet Cruze off the side of the roadway, where it overturned.

Car Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents are unfortunately all too common in Missouri. There are many different causes of car accidents, but some are more common than others. Factors that are often cited as causes of traffic collisions in our state include:
- Speeding: Drivers who speed are more likely to lose control of their vehicle, and they are also more likely to cause a serious accident.
- Failing to yield: When drivers fail to yield, they often cause serious accidents. This is especially true at intersections, where drivers who fail to yield can cause a serious collision.
- Distracted driving: Drivers who are distracted by their cell phones or other things inside their vehicle are more likely to cause an accident.
- Fatigued driving: Drivers who are tired can fall asleep at the wheel, and this can lead to a serious accident.
