Missouri car accident leaves several injured along the roadway

The importance of yield signs and obeying traffic rules when out on the road can't be overstated. When someone disregards simple traffic laws, such as the rules of yielding to others, a car accident can occur and people can get hurt. This appears to be the cause of a recent Missouri car accident.

In the middle of the afternoon, a 29-year-old was headed north when he didn't yield to traffic coming his way. He ended up hitting a 55-year-old man who was in a Hyundai. The driver who caused the accident needed to be airlifted from the scene and was said to have suffered serious injuries.

The man who was hit by the non-yielding driver's vehicle needed medical treatment. He had two passengers with him, a 54-year-old woman and a 15-year-old also. All three had on seatbelts but still sustained injuries that required them to be transported to a hospital. There is no word on the seriousness of the injuries or if there may be any charges filed against the man who hit them.

The family who was injured in this Missouri car accident may be able to pursue a civil case against the man who hit them, regardless of whether criminal charges are filed. If successful, a civil suit in Missouri can lead to an award of monetary damages. For some accident victims, a settlement can help them pay for medical bills, cover lost wages, or even help surviving families pay for funeral costs if the car accident resulted in the death of a loved one.
