Marshall, MO (November 13, 2022) – A crash that took place in Saline County left one 68-year-old woman from Marshall, Missouri, injured. The crash was reported at around 5:05 p.m. on November 12.
According to preliminary investigations provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the driver of a 2014 Ford pickup truck failed to yield the right-of-way to a 2020 Ford SUV traveling southbound on US Highway 65. As a result, the Ford pickup truck traveled into the path of the SUV at Keokuk Avenue. The two vehicles then collided, leaving them both with significant damage.
The driver of the Ford SUV, 68-year-old Mabel Collins, suffered moderate injuries in the crash. Collins was transported to Fitzgibbon Hospital, where she underwent emergency care.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol is actively investigating the crash.
We hope Mabel Collins recovers quickly from her injuries.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Crashes take place far too often in the state of Missouri. Regardless of how many laws we have in place to protect motorists, we continue to see innocent people suffer as a result of drivers who engage in reckless actions while behind the wheel. There are many different types of automobile accidents, but one of the most common is when a driver fails to yield the right-of-way.
The purpose of a yield sign is to indicate to drivers that they must yield the right-of-way to other vehicles or pedestrians who have the right-of-way. When approaching a yield sign, drivers must slow down and be prepared to stop if necessary. If there are no other vehicles or pedestrians present, drivers may proceed through the intersection.
Unfortunately, not all drivers obey yield signs and this can often lead to serious automobile accidents. Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way can cause collisions with other vehicles. In some cases, these accidents can even be fatal.
Failure to yield crashes often happen at intersections when one driver does not see another coming and tries to make a turn. It can also happen when two drivers are both trying to merge into the same lane. If you have been hurt as a result of an automobile accident caused by a driver who failed to yield the right-of-way, it is important to contact a Marshall car accident lawyer who can help you recover damages for your injuries.
