Nighttime car accident in Missouri injures 3

Stop lights are notorious locations for rear-end car accidents on roadways. A stop light in Missouri was recently the scene of a rear-end car accident that resulted in the injury of three people. The accident occurred just before 9 p.m. on a Saturday night.

The collision unfolded as a 70-year-old man was sitting at the light. He was in a 2009 Impala on Highway 67. A 58-year-old man was driving a Ford Explorer and came up from behind. The Explorer hit the Impala and pushed the car into the opposite lane of the roadway.

Both drivers were injured in the crash. There was a 56-year-old woman in the Impala and she sustained injuries from the collision also. Both of the vehicles involved were totaled due to the impact. There was no further word on the extent of injuries nor was there an update as to the overall condition of the injured.

In a car accident such as this one, the couple who were hit sustained heavy damage to their vehicle and also needed medical attention, all of which will be costly for them. In Missouri, when a person is at a stop light and rear-ended by another, that victim may pursue a personal injury suit as a means of garnering compensation for the monetary damages suffered as a result of the crash. These damages can include the cost of medical bills, the cost of on-going treatment and the recovery of lost wages if the injured parties have to miss work in order to recover.
