Woman Dies in St. Louis Car Accident

Car accidents can happen anywhere, and they on occasion happen in St. Louis. It’s important to note that they don’t always involve more than one vehicle, so we recommend that all drivers should be careful when traveling on the highways and roadways.

For example, a recent accident has taken the life of a St. Louis woman. It occurred early one morning, according to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, while she was traveling through downtown St. Louis on Interstate 44. She lost control of her car, which then veered onto North Broadway and flipped over. The woman died at the scene.

Fortunately, this accident did not involve any other vehicles or pedestrians. It could have been caused by a number of things, and investigators are still looking into what may have caused her to lose control of her vehicle. There’s speculation that she may have fallen asleep at the wheel, or she could have been intoxicated or texting while she was driving.

If this accident had involved others, those individuals would have been wise to contact a St. Louis car accident attorney right away. Getting timely legal advice in matters such as these is critical to making your case and receiving just compensation. If you’re in an accident and you’re injured, contact your St. Louis car accident attorney right away so we can discuss your case. Putting it off may cause unnecessary delays.
