Missouri car accident leaves several injured

Any kind of car crash on the road can be complicate to figure out and result in injuries. However, when there are multiple vehicles involved, it can be all the more complicated. Recently in Missouri, a car accident involving three vehicles led to a number of injuries for several.

The Thursday night car crash occurred when a truck crossed the middle of the road. That truck then hit a van head on. Just after that collision, another car came along and hit the truck that had initially caused the car accident. It is unclear why that vehicle could not stop.

The driver who caused the three vehicle incident was transported to the hospital. However, the driver of the van sustained serious injuries in the accident. Two children in the van also had injuries from the crash. Another person, a male, also had injuries. The driver who came along last was not hurt in the melee.

While there is no mention of criminal charges, there may be an investigation as to why the driver who caused the crash crossed the center line to begin with. In a case where a driver clearly causes an accident for whatever reason and there are injuries to innocent people as a result, there may be cause for those injured to file a civil suit in a Missouri civil court. A civil suit stemming from a car accident can lead to the awarding of damages. Those damages may be beneficial for victims who have to contend with lost wages or medical bills.
