Car Accidents in Missouri

St Louis, MO - One Injured in Two-Vehicle Crash on I-270 near W Florissant AveVehicle accidents can have a sudden and overwhelming impact on the lives of those involved. We see tens of thousands of people hospitalized annually in our state as a result of drivers who are negligent.

There are many causes of car accidents in Missouri, but some of the most common include drivers who are intoxicated, drivers who run red lights, and drivers who switch lanes aggressively.

Intoxicated drivers are a major problem on Missouri roads. If you’re driving after drinking, you’re putting yourself and others at risk. Driving while intoxicated can make it difficult for you to maintain control of your vehicle. As a result, drunk drivers often drift into other lanes and crash into cars sharing the road.

Running red lights is another major cause of accidents in Missouri. If you blow through a red light, you could collide with another vehicle or pedestrian, causing serious injuries or even death. Not to mention, it’s against the law.

Switching lanes aggressively is yet another dangerous behavior that can lead to accidents. If you’re not paying attention to your surroundings and you make a sudden lane change, you could sideswipe another vehicle or cut someone off, leading to a collision.
