A car accident happened at the same Sunset Hills intersection where another accident occurred just ten days ago. On Monday, a car crash with very similar circumstances to the November 13th crash resulted in the death of one individual. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 28-year-old Robert D. Simpson was operating a Buick Lucerne eastbound on Gravois Road when he attempted to make a left turn. As Simpson turned, he collided with the driver’s side of a Chevy Cavalier driven by 22-year-old Joshua T. Wilcockson. The impact caused the Chevy to go down a ravine and eject Wilcockson from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Simpson, his passenger, and the passenger in the Chevy were all transported to the hospitals for injuries they sustained. Authorities believe their injuries are non-life threatening, and the accident is under investigation.
Dangerous roadways are a factor in many auto accidents that occur annually. There are regulations regarding the specifications of roadways to ensure the safety of travelers, but some states or cities have created roadways that are considered dangerous. Curves that are difficult to negotiate, intersections without adequate traffic signals, and narrow roads can all lead to an auto accident with tragic results.
