Toddler Dies in Car Crash in St. Louis

When you’re a parent, there’s nothing that can compare to losing a child. It’s the most heart breaking, devastating experience imaginable. One mother is currently in stable condition after an accident in St. Louis. However, her daughter, who was three years old, did not survive.

According to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, the toddler’s mother was driving her 2006 Hummer H3 when she was cut off by a Mercedes-Benz. Once this occurred, the mother hit another vehicle and slid out of control. She struck a median and the Hummer rolled over onto its side.

The toddler was ejected from the Hummer, and the police were not clear about whether or not she had been buckled properly into her car seat. Even so, this is clearly a case of reckless driving on the part of the driver of the Mercedes-Benz, and this accident certainly could have been prevented.

The mother and her daughter are the victims in this case, and they deserve to be compensated. A St. Louis car accident attorney can assist with helping the mother understand her rights so that she knows how to proceed.

In the same way, if you’re the victim of a car accident, please contact your St. Louis car accident attorney to ask for help. You don’t have to fight this battle on your own, and the right legal representation is necessary to protect your legal rights.
