A accident on Route U and Highway 124 near Columbia, MO. sent three people to the hospital on Friday afternoon. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the accident happened when a Centralia, Mo. woman driving a Ford Explorer pulled out in front of a Chevy Blazer being driven by a man from Hallsville, Mo. All three people, including the passenger of the Blazer were sent to the hospital with minor to moderate injuries. According to reports from the scene of the accident, only one of the three victims was wearing a safetly belt.
This is a fortunate situation where the victims weren't wearing seat belts and only suffered minor injuries. This isn't always the case in which seat belts aren't being used. The number one way to limit or prevent injuries in a Kansas City auto accident is to simply buckle up when you get in the car whether you are the passenger or the driver. Kansas and Missouri law enforcement officials are strictly upholding state seat belt laws and its not just to make a few extra bucks. The goal is to protect motorists when accidents happen.
The Missouri personal injury and accident attorneys at the Roswold Law Group in Kansas City wish a speedy recovery to all three victims in this untimely accident and hope in the future all motorists practice attentive driving so that the roads are safe for everyone.
