Detroit Woman Shot Following Car Accident

It was a tragic day, earlier this month, when a nineteen-year-old woman was hurt in an automobile accident in Detroit. However, the accident itself wasn’t the cause of the tragic event.

After the accident occurred, authorities say the woman approached a nearby home to ask for assistance. When she approached the house, the homeowner, a fifty-four-year-old man, shot her in the face, killing her instantly, according to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website.

The family was devastated at the loss of this young woman, and prosecutors are reviewing whether or not to bring charges against the homeowner for what he did.

While these situations are rare, it’s important to know exactly what to do if you, or someone you love, is ever in an accident. As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, it is our goal to provide you with the legal assistance you will need if you are in an accident. However, at the scene of the accident, it’s important to remain there until the police arrive.

Almost everyone has a cell phone, but if you don’t, it’s a good idea to get one in case of an emergency. That way, you can quickly contact the authorities if you need to.

Once you have contacted the police, contact us, your St. Louis personal injury attorneys, for any legal assistance you might need.
