2 vehicle car accident in Missouri ends with fatality

Anytime cars are approaching one another from opposite directions, there is a need for both drivers to pay close attention and remain in control of their vehicles at all times. Whenever one driver loses control for any reason, there may be an increased risk of a car accident. On a Missouri road recently, one out of control vehicle seemed to have been the catalyst for a fatal car accident.

The accident happened on a Monday morning as two cars came toward each other. A car driven by a 22-year-old driver was headed south. Another vehicle driven by a 33-year-old woman was in the northbound lane of the road. The vehicle driven by the 22-year-old crossed over the center lane and collided with the other vehicle.

The 22-year-old man died as a result of the crash. He was ejected from his vehicle. The other car left the roadway, and it was on fire from the crash. That 33-year-old driver needed to be transported to the hospital. However, there was no word as to the extent of her injuries.

There is currently an investigation into the car accident. Even though the driver who may have caused the accident died as a result of the crash, the other driver may have legal recourse to recover damages against his estate. She is entitled to pursue a claim for financial damages in a Missouri civil court. If she is able to establish liability by a preponderance of the evidence, she may be awarded damages that could help her deal with any medical bills or other financial losses related to the car accident.
