Beginner drivers in Missouri and elsewhere are often taught to be especially alert and cautious at intersections. There is often a lot happening simultaneously at a crossroads. Traffic lights changing, pedestrians nearby and surrounding traffic makes such sections of roadways high-risk for collisions. Sadly, a recent crash that occurred on a Friday night produced tragic results.
Police say 2 cars were involved in the crash
Preliminary investigations show that it was close to 11 p.m. when the collision took place. Details were not provided as to exactly what caused a BMW headed in a southbound direction to collide with an eastbound vehicle. Sadly, some late-night drivers doze off while others have had too much to drink.
A 32-year-old man was driving the vehicle that was struck and succumbed to his injuries at the scene. A man and woman were in the BMW. They both suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening, and they were transported to a hospital for treatment.
When a loved one dies in a Missouri collision
When police inform surviving family members that a loved one has died in a collision, the resulting grief often lasts for months or longer. It is especially difficult for those who learn that their loved one may not have died were it not for another driver’s negligence. In such cases, an immediate family member typically has grounds to file a wrongful death claim in civil court.
