Passenger allegedly causes Missouri car accident

Whenever a person transports passengers in his or her vehicle, that driver is taking on the legal responsibility to safeguard any and all passengers in that vehicle. When a person is a passenger in a vehicle, he or she also has a responsibility not to hinder the safe operation of that vehicle with his or her own safety and the safety of others in mind. One passenger in Missouri may be facing criminal charges and could possibly face a civil complaint after a recent car accident.

Car accident in Missouri proves deadly, leaves others injured

Passing others on the highway can lead to devastating injuries when an accident occurs, particularly when more than two vehicles are involved. All too frequently, a multi-vehicle car accident can lead to injuries and worse, as was the case recently on a Missouri roadway. A recent car accident took the life of a church van driver and left others with injuries.

Missouri car accident leaves 1 driver dead, others injured

When vehicles approach one another on the roadway, each driver may need to be extra-aware of surroundings and any potential for a collision. Despite that awareness by many Missouri drivers, a car accident can still occur. A recent Missouri crash occurred as two cars were heading toward each other and collided after one vehicle crossed the center line.

Distracted driving may have led to deadly Missouri crash

When there is an accident, particularly one with injuries or a death involved, the state police may need to investigate all aspects of the crash to determine the cause and if any criminal charges may be warranted. The Missouri State Police recently investigated a car accident, and the driver has now been charged. It appears as if distracted driving may have played a role in the deadly car accident.
