Passenger Dies After Tragic St. Louis Accident

Passengers have legal rights if they are involved in an accident in St. Louis, and families of passengers do as well. A recent accident that occurred in the middle of the afternoon in Hancock County resulted in the death of one woman who was a passenger in the vehicle.

According to the article on the Sun Herald website, the crash occurred because the driver of a white sedan was traveling north in a southbound lane. The oncoming vehicle was a Ford pickup truck, and while the driver tried to swerve to avoid the crash, he was not successful. The passenger died at the scene of the crash, and the wellbeing of the sedan’s driver was unknown at the time of the article.

It’s hard to say why this accident occurred, and the article isn’t clear as to whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, or if the driver of the sedan was texting and moved into the oncoming lane purely by mistake. Regardless of the reason behind this accident, justice should be served because of the passenger’s death.

If you lose someone you love in a similar accident, or if you’re injured as a passenger, it’s important to get legal help from a St. Louis personal injury lawyer right away. You don’t have to suffer in silence, and your St. Louis personal injury lawyer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
