Around 2 PM today, August 9th, a forty-six year old woman driving a Chrysler HHR collided head on with a thirty-one year old man driving a Dodge pickup. The woman weaved across the center line and struck with the other driver. The accident occurred near Pineville on Route H. The pickup driver was wearing a seat belt, however, the driver of the Chrysler was not. Unfortunately, the driver of the Chrysler sustained serious injuries. She is currently hospitalized.
Missouri law requires the highest standard of care in operating a vehicle. More than what a reasonable driver would do, the highest standard of care requires responsibility and attention when driving. This protects not only drivers, but passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists. As this morning's crash shows, tragic injury can happen quickly when a vehicle loses control.
