Winchester, MO (November 28, 2022) – A traffic accident took place in Clark County that left three people injured. At around 6:15 a.m., on November 26, the Missouri State Highway Patrol received a request for assistance at the scene of a crash on Route H.
According to law enforcement, in 1994 Isuzu Trooper was involved in a collision on Route H just two miles west of Winchester, Missouri. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to go off the left side of the roadway and overturned. All of the people inside the vehicle were ejected.

The crash remains under investigation at this time.
We hope the three teens who were harmed in this crash recover quickly.
Car Accidents in Missouri
A car accident can change your life forever. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people in Missouri are left with significant injuries as a result of traffic collisions. In some cases, victims are left with severe spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and other significant injuries that require medical care.
If you are involved in a car accident and are ejected from the vehicle, the severity of your injuries will be increased. This is because you will be thrown from the vehicle with great force and can hit objects both inside and outside of the car. Even if you are wearing a seatbelt, you can still be ejected from the vehicle if the impact of the accident is severe enough.
Being ejected from a vehicle can cause serious injury or death. When you are ejected from a vehicle, your body is subjected to high levels of force that can cause internal bleeding, broken bones, and other serious injuries. If you are lucky enough to survive being ejected from a vehicle, you will likely suffer from long-term effects such as permanent disability or chronic pain. In many cases, victims who are ejected from their vehicles have to go through extensive medical treatment that is both time-consuming and costly.
If you have suffered significant injuries in a car accident involving ejection, you may have legal options available to help you cover the costs you face and move forward. A Winchester car accident lawyer can help you file a personal injury lawsuit against the person who is responsible.
