Car accident in Missouri takes lives of 2 teens

Being a passenger in a vehicle is essentially putting one's life in the hands of whomever is behind the wheel. A passenger is also putting his or her life in the hands of everyone else on the road, as a car accident can occur at any time, regardless of the actions of a safe and lawful driver. A car accident in Missouri has taken the lives of two people who were passengers in a car.

The accident occurred as a driver was headed north and attempted to pass a car. When that vehicle ventured into the other lane to pass the car, another vehicle, headed southbound, was coming toward it. The passing car then tried to get back into the northbound lane. This led to the car skidding sideways, at which time it was hit by the vehicle coming from the south.

Both drivers of the cars needed medical care, and one is in serious condition, while the other sustained minor injuries. The two passengers in the passing car died as a result of the crash. There is currently an investigation into the car accident.

When a car accident of this nature takes the lives of passengers, the families left behind may face more than the emotional hardships associated with losing loved ones in this manner. Families may find themselves burdened with hospital bills and the cost of funerals for their loved ones. Missouri families may explore their options for wrongful death suits in civil court at a time when family members feel such actions may be warranted and appropriate.
