Jefferson County Crash Injures Two, Kills One
There are automobile accidents every day. When we get in a car, we take the chance that something can happen where someone is driving recklessly or just simply not following the rules of the road, possibly causing an accident to occur. This results in numerous injuries and deaths as a result of these accidents.
According to an article in St. Louis Today, an accident Sunday left two people injured and one man dead. The accident was on Highway 61, north of Brad Ford Dr. in Herculaneum, Jefferson County. Police say that 61 year old Danny Coaley was driving his 1993 Chevy S-10 when he crossed the center line. He collided with an oncoming 2010 Ford F150 head-on, driven by 29 year old Trevor Buerck. Trevor and his 3- year old son, Nolan were taken to St. Anthony’s Medical Center, both with minor injuries. Coaley, who was not wearing a seat belt, was killed as a result of the crash.
Many times, accidents cause problems beyond injuries. Some of the things you might face following an accident might be:
- Medical bills after the initial injuries
- Inability to work, short or long term, depending on severity of injuries
- Cost of car repair
- Pain and suffering due to being in an accident
