Tragedy strikes Missouri family due to fatal car accident

No words can describe how a family is ever able to come to terms with the loss of a young child from a fatal car accident. In many cases, a driver's moment of inattention or distraction turns an otherwise uneventful day into a tragedy from which a family may never truly recover. In a recent Missouri car accident, an 11-month-old girl died after she and her grandfather and aunt were struck by a car as they left church on a Sunday morning.

Missouri teen dies in car accident; 2 others hospitalize

A mere moment of negligent driving is all it may take for a fatal accident to occur. These accidents can be made more severe when the occupants of the vehicle are not properly restrained. In a recent car accident in Missouri, one teenage boy is dead and two remain in the hospital after they were involved in a single vehicle accident in the early morning.

Driver negligence found to be criminal in Missouri trial

It did not take long for a jury to return a guilty verdict for a man who was alleged to have not taken the proper precautions in securing a piece of heavy machinery on the back of his truck. The Missouri jury took about four hours to determine that the driver, a 27-year-old man, was criminally negligent for an accident that took two women's lives. This verdict could further support a claim of liability for a driver negligence case in civil court, although it is unclear whether such an action has been filed at this time.

Cause of fatal truck accident in Missouri is not clear
