When drivers are on the road, regardless of their own driving skills or ability to follow the rules of the road, they are truly at the mercy of other drivers. For a vehicle driving on a Missouri roadway recently, being in their own lane didn't prevent them from becoming embroiled in a car accident. The two cars involved hit virtually head-on shortly after 6 p.m.
When a Missouri accident results in serious injury or death, police may look into whether criminal charges should be filed against the driver who they determine was responsible for causing the wreck. Investigating whether alcohol, cell phone usage or other factors played a role may lead Missouri police to issue criminal charges that may expose the driver to potential civil and criminal consequences. A man who is alleged to have caused a three car accident was recently arrested after police say he initiated a head-on collision that killed one child and sent several others to the hospital.
A two car accident has killed one woman and sent another to the hospital. Missouri police reported that the car accident occurred around 2 a.m. when the two vehicles that were traveling on opposite sides of the road collided head-on. The impact was so severe that neither occupant could remove themselves from their vehicle.
