Missouri car accident kills 1 and injures many

Anytime a car is hit from behind on the interstate, there is the potential for serious injuries or worse. For a car load of people in Missouri recently, being hit from behind caused a number of injuries in both vehicles and also the death of a woman. In fact, an 18-year-old woman was killed and six people were injured in the car accident.

The accident occurred at night along the interstate. A car was traveling in the southbound lane and for an unknown reason; the car collided with another car in front of it. Both cars ended up leaving the roadway, according to police at the scene.

The 18-year-old died at the scene. In the car she was in, an 8-year-old girl and a 31-year-old were injured seriously. Three other people, including the driver of the car that was hit, suffered minor injuries. The 49-year-old driver of the second car was reported to be seriously injured.

While there is no mention of criminal charges or a reason for the collision to have taken place, those affected by this car accident -- particularly the family of the girl who lost her life -- may be able to pursue damages against the driver who hit the car she was in. Whenever someone has been seriously injured or killed in a car accident, damages may be awarded in a Missouri civil court if just cause is found. Awarded monetary damages may help those affected or those who have incurred medical bills deal with the financial ramifications of a car accident.
