One Dead and One Injured in Car Accident in St. Louis
According to a recent report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch one man was killed and another was injured in a collision at an intersection in St. Louis on February 4, 2013. The impact was so violent that one driver suffered fatal injuries after being thrown completely from his vehicle.
The other driver involved was taken to the hospital and was in stable condition at the time of the report. The accident was apparently caused when one driver went through a red light and struck the other vehicle. At the time of the report it was unclear as to exactly what caused the driver to run the red light.
Those involved in accidents with negligent drivers can pay the high price of soaring medical bills and face lost wages from extended absences from work. An accident with a negligent or distracted driver can even result in someone paying the ultimate price as was the case in this instance where one driver lost their life.
