Snowmobile Accident Claims the Life of One in St. Louis

With the snow falling all around us, it’s inevitable that there will be some snow-related accidents occurring. One man is currently dead because of a snowmobile accident in St. Louis, according to the CBS St. Louis website.

The man was riding a snowmobile along with several of his friends one night recently when he missed a curve and ran into a tree. It is believed that he was going too fast, and even though he was wearing a helmet, he was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Fortunately, none of his friends were injured or killed as a result of the crash, and there were no other individuals involved.

As your St. Louis personal injury attorneys, we want to caution you about these types of accidents; especially during the time of year when the snowfall increases. Pedestrian accidents don’t only refer to individuals involved with accidents with cars. They can also refer to other types of vehicles, such as motorcycles and during this time of year, snowmobiles. This accident was tragic, but according to the article it could have been prevented.

If you’re injured in a pedestrian accident this winter – whether it’s with a car, a truck or a vehicle like a snowmobile – please do not hesitate to contact us, your local, St. Louis personal injury attorneys. You deserve compensation for the accident, and we’ll fight hard to see that you receive it.
