Serious Car Accident In The Midwest

Posted on January 4, 2013

Car accidents usually occur because of negligence. While a driver may not be intentionally causing a collision, their careless driving behavior is reason enough. Drivers have a responsibility to be responsible when they get behind the wheel. They must be attentive on the road and carefully watching out for other vehicles.

Authorities are investigating after passengers fled following a three-vehicle wreck near Midtown St. Louis Thursday night.

Authorities said an abandoned vehicle was struck by a vehicle in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 44 near Grand Boulevard around 10 p.m.

Moments later, a third vehicle crashed into the other two. The vehicles ended up in the middle of the interstate, forcing police to close the eastbound lanes for about 30 minutes.

At some point, occupants of one vehicle fled from the scene on foot, according to police. Officials have not determined why the passengers fled, but they are searching for them.

Emergency crews responded shortly after police arrived and transported multiple people to the hospital. The extent of the injuries is unknown.

If you or a loved one were the victim of a car accident that was caused by negligence or some other form of reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.
