One Person Killed and Multiple People Injured in Road Way Accident

Accidents happen. This is an unfortunate truth. All it takes is one quick mistake and life alters. This recently happened when a tractor trailer caused a life-changing accident in St. Louis.

In early December a tractor trailer traveling west on I-70 merged into a car. The impact caused a cascade effect as other vehicles swerved to avoid the carnage and collided with others in the flow of traffic. Ultimately, multiple cars sustained damage. Several drivers ended their day in the back of an ambulance on a trip to the ER.

And tragically, one driver did not make it that far. Police confirmed an on-scene fatality as a result of the accident.

Authorities have yet to release the full cause of the accident, whether negligence on the part of the truck driver or a mistake made by the driver of the car. Either way, the results were the same, an innocent life ended too early.

We live in this tragic reality where a single mistake can extinguish an innocent life in an instant. Most of us have witnessed an accident in our lives, either firsthand or as a passerby.

If you experience similar trauma please contact your St. Louis personal injury attorneys. Remember, only a St. Louis personal injury attorney knows the importance of the details surrounding each case. Especially with regards to legal advice pertaining to compensation, rights, and the best way to protect yourself.
