Car Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle wrecks occur daily in the state of Missouri that have devastating consequences for those involved. Unfortunately, many innocent people are hurt as a result of drivers who engage in acts of negligence. There are many causes of car crashes, but some of the most common are driver impairment, drivers who are talking on their phones, drivers who travel too fast, and drivers who pass stop signs.
Driver impairment can be caused by many things, including alcohol, drugs, fatigue, and distraction. Drivers who are talking on their phones are distracted and may not be paying attention to the road. Drivers who travel too fast may not have time to react to a situation on the road. Drivers who pass stop signs may not see a pedestrian or another car coming.
