Two men were killed in a Missouri truck accident during the early morning hours of June 16. The victims and another passenger were traveling in a car when it crashed into a semi-truck on Old Highway M near Lemay Ferry Road in Imperial. The truck was backing up onto a private road and the vehicle rear-ended the truck, resulting in this fatal truck accident.
A two-vehicle accident that occurred on May 30 has left one man dead and a woman in critical condition. According to Missouri police, the truck accident occurred at around 7:40 p.m. when a truck driven by a 52-year-old man was slowing to make a left-hand turn off of Highway 22 in Audrain County.
One of the most frightening thoughts any of us might have is to be helplessly stuck on train tracks as a locomotive charges toward us with no more than a few moments to rush to safety. A train accident is often treacherous, whether it occurs in Missouri or anyplace else, if for no other reason than the difference in size between the train and virtually any other vehicle with which it may collide. At times, obstructed views, poorly marked railroad crossings and even a train speeding on the tracks may explain the wreck that occurs. When that other vehicle is a car, the consequences are often disastrous. Unfortunately, two people ended up in a similar situation in St. Louis on April 24.
Car accidents often happen suddenly and unexpectedly. They can cause immense damage, serious injuries and even death. For those who have lost a loved one in a car accident, the shock and pain can be extremely difficult to bear. Whether the victim was a husband and father who was the sole provider for the family, or a young child whose life was ended far too soon, the loss is often felt very deeply by friends and family members. A recent car accident in Missouri illustrates this point.
Car accidents in and of themselves are frightening and often very overwhelming, but when an accident causes serious injuries or death, many people may be left devastated. A recent car accident has claimed the lives of not one, but four students in Missouri. The driver, also a student, sustained severe injuries as a result of the crash.
