Missouri police investigate car accident that led to injuries

When a car becomes disabled for any reason, that car and its driver and passengers may be in a vulnerable position. Other vehicle drivers on the road have a responsibility to be aware and avoid any disabled vehicles and occupants of those vehicles. Unawareness of a disabled vehicle on a Missouri roadway recently led to a car accident and injuries for a few involved.

The accident happened when a 30-year-old driver was headed south in a Chevrolet. The vehicle was cresting a hill around 1:30 p.m. A Chevrolet Malibu was stalled in the right hand lane of that road and the 30-year-old driver's vehicle hit the disabled Malibu.

There were two passengers in the Malibu and those passengers were wearing seat belts. The driver was outside of the vehicle when it was hit. One of the passengers sustained moderate injuries. The driver who collided with the Malibu also sustained injuries and needed medical attention. A child in the vehicle that was hit also had injuries and needed medical treatment for those injuries.

An investigation of this car accident may help determine liability for the incident. If the driver who hit the Malibu is found to be liable for the car accident, the injured passengers may have the ability to seek legal assistance and compensation in a Missouri civil court. This kind of court action can result in the awarding of personal injury damages that could be beneficial as injured parties often have to deal with medical bills and lost wages, even when injuries have not been severe or life-threatening.
