As an elderly couple from New Mexico were traveling through Missouri they were involved in a single-vehicle auto accident that claimed the life of the woman. The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that the accident happened on Sunday when a 78-year-old man was driving a vehicle on Highway 63 in Howell County and the driver ran off the side of the road. As the vehicle veered off the roadway, it struck a driveway and caused the vehicle to overturn near West Plains. Tragically, the vehicle’s passenger, a 78-year-old woman, was killed in the accident and the driver was injured.
The event of an auto accident can be frightening and traumatic. Following a crash, drivers should attempt to remain calm and seek medical attention for themselves or any other individuals that may have been injured. All individuals must remain at the scene to provide personal information and statements to the police. After you are in a safe location and medically stable, it is important to contact an experienced auto accident attorney as soon as possible.
