Car accidents: 1 dead and six injured after cross over center

The lives of Missouri road users can change in a matter of seconds. Car accidents are never anticipated, and the consequences often include life-changing injuries or even death. Injured victims of vehicle accidents commonly have to face high medical expenses, and any inability to work may be financially devastating. Fatalities in road accidents usually leave families facing end-of-life costs while grieving a loved one's death.

Inconsiderate lane changing can cause serious truck accidents

Missouri drivers may not recognize the dangers of driving in the vicinity of large trucks. When traveling on multi-lane highways, it is not uncommon for semi-trucks or tractor-trailers to change lanes without considering other vehicles. Drivers of these huge vehicles often say that blind spots exist, and they may deny responsibility for truck accidents. Drivers of smaller vehicles commonly expect truck drivers to take extra care. Truck drivers may be wise not to assume that sedan drivers know exactly where they need to drive in order to be visible to the driver of a truck.

Wrong-way car accidents remain a concern on Missouri roads

Wrong-way drivers remain a concern in Missouri and other states. While authorities are working on ways to address the issue, severe injuries and even fatalities resulting from car accidents caused by wrong-way drivers continue to occur. A recent head-on collision that involved a wrong-way driver claimed the life of a 26-year-old man.

Alleged negligent driver causes 1 death, personal injury to 2

It is often reported that a driver who crashes into another vehicle runs away from the accident scene. This may be due to shock, but could have dire consequences. Fleeing an accident scene -- on foot or in a vehicle -- will likely result in charges of leaving the scene of an accident where personal injury or death may have occurred, along with any other criminal charges that may be filed. A man is currently in custody, following his arrest after he apparently ran off when he allegedly caused a fatal accident in Missouri.
