Car Accidents in Missouri
The time after a vehicle accident can be incredibly difficult to deal with. Many people are struggling to overcome painful physical and emotional injuries. Unfortunately, many accidents involve drivers that cross over the center of the roadway.
There are several reasons why vehicles cross over the centerline and cause crashes. In some cases, drivers may be distracted and not paying attention to the road. In other cases, drivers may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Additionally, poor road conditions can also contribute to centerline crossings and resulting crashes.
Whatever the reason for a vehicle crossing over the centerline, the results can be devastating and life-changing for victims.
