Spring and Fall: Accidents Involving Cars and Farm Equipment Rises
The spring and fall seasons are busy ones for farmers in Missouri. They have a lot of equipment out working on their farms, but it's also traveling on the roads. That puts them at risk for accidents, and it is not surprising that there are so many more crashes involving farm equipment during these times of the year.
Farm Equipment Accidents in 2018
In 2018, there were about 100 accidents in the State of Missouri that involved farm equipment. Three of them have led to someone's death. Unfortunately, these types of accidents are becoming more common, and Missouri highway patrol officers have reported that they are on the rise. Many of them occur when drivers try to pass the farm equipment when they are moving too slowly, but they are often unaware of what might be coming from the other direction.
