Missouri car accident leaves women injured, car totaled

Being rear-ended on the road can cause a driver to lose control and subsequently lead to serious injuries and damage to a vehicle. When a person is rear-ended by another vehicle and a car accident ensues, anyone injured in the accident should be aware of his or her rights as a victim and what legal recourse he or she may have in a civil court. One recent Missouri car accident led to injuries to two women as they were the victims of being rear-ended.

The accident occurred on a Sunday afternoon. A 29-year-old woman was driving a Volkswagen Jetta when she was hit from behind. The driver who hit her was a 31-year-old man who was driving a Ford Mustang.

The force of the impact caused the Jetta to leave the roadway and strike a median. The vehicle also overturned as a result of the collision. The driver suffered serious injuries and the passenger, a 33-year-old woman, had what was described as minor injuries. The Jetta was totaled and the other vehicle suffered minor damage. There was no word as to any injuries suffered by the driver who hit the women.

The injured women may be able to pursue action in a civil court in Missouri. That action could open the door to monetary damages based on whether or not the personal injury suit brought was successful or not. If successful, those damages could help both women deal with the cost of medical treatment, lost wages or any other monetary loss they may have suffered as a result of being the victim of a rear-end car accident.
