St Charles, MO – One Injured in Two-Vehicle Wreck on Highway P near Broadhead LnAuto accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in the state of Missouri. Each year, tens of thousands of people are transported to area hospitals with injuries following crashes that take place in our state. The majority of accidents in Missouri are entirely preventable. We see innocent people hurt daily as a result of motorists who engage in careless and reckless actions.

Failing to yield is one of the leading causes of Missouri traffic incidents. When you fail to yield, you put yourself and others at risk of being involved in an accident. We see many accidents take place due to drivers who fail to yield to others at intersections and while switching lanes.

We see many T-bone collisions take place at intersections after drivers run red lights or pass stop signs.

Drunk driving is yet another leading common factor in traffic incidents across our state. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs your ability to drive safely and increases the risk that you’ll be involved in an accident. Drunk drivers often cause severe injury accidents. In many instances, these accidents lead to death.
