One-Car Accident in St. Louis County Kills Driver

Car accidents in St. Louis county are a regular part of the news, and quite often they can be deadly. In a recent article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, the driver of a Dodge Charger was killed after his vehicle left the roadway while making a turn on Missouri Highway 367.

The article states that the Charger crashed through a guardrail before overturning and going down an embankment. Fortunately, the driver didn’t have any passengers in the car with him and there were no pedestrians standing nearby. At the time the article was published, authorities were still investigating the cause of the accident, which happened at approximately 4:10 in the morning. However, there’s no denying that this terrible wreck could have been much worse.

As your St. Louis car accident attorney, we like to call attention to these types of stories because passengers and pedestrians don’t always realize they have rights if they’re involved in car accidents. If you’re a victim of any kind of accident, then it’s important for you to talk to someone about your case. You do have rights, and as a victim you have a right to pursue compensation for your injuries and losses.

This accident was tragic, but fortunately, no one else was hurt. If you’re involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, contact a St. Louis car accident attorney to find out how to protect your rights.
