Meyerkord, Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

Yesterday morning a two-vehicle crash near Plevna, MO left one dead and two others injured. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a 44-year-old male from Novelty was driving a 1998 GMC Sonoma northbound on Mo. 15 and a 32-year-old male from Shelbyville was driving a 1994 Chevrolet S10 southbound when the two vehicles struck head on in the southbound lane. The accident occurred around 6 a.m. Tuesday morning about 5 miles north of Plevna. A 35-year-old female passenger in the second vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene by a Knox County coroner about an hour after the accident. The driver of the second car was airlifted to University Hospital in Columbia, MO with serious injuries while the driver of the first car was taken by private vehicle to Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville with minor injuries. Reportedly, both the deceased passenger and two drivers were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.

A number of factors can contribute to car accidents alone as well as the severity of car accidents. Too often the negligence of another reckless driver leaves innocent drivers injured both physically and financially. Unfortunately, no matter how many precautions are taken, no one can fully protect themselves against reckless drivers.
