There are many roadway maneuvers that can prove tricky for drivers. These scenarios can be even more dangerous if other drivers are not paying attention. In particular, merging lanes or exiting interstate roadways can pose a number of hazards. In fact, a serious accident could result.
It was recently reported that a crash resulting in injuries took place in Missouri. Details on the incident were few, but the report stated that a collision between two vehicles occurred at the bottom of an interstate exit ramp. The incident resulted in one vehicle overturning and catching fire. The driver of the second vehicle involved did not stay at the scene. There was only one person in the vehicle that flipped, and details regarding the second vehicle and its driver were not given in the report.
The accident resulted in the driver of the overturned vehicle suffering serious injuries. However, those injuries were not considered life-threatening. That person’s age was not provided. The incident was still under investigation at the time of the report, and authorities are undoubtedly on the lookout for the other driver and vehicle involved.
This Missouri incident certainly caused the injured person a great deal of stress and fear. Though the accident itself is over, the driver may still have many difficulties to address as a result of the crash. Because he or she may lose income from time away from work and have medical expenses to attend to, it may be wise for that individual to consider legal options for seeking compensation. After authorities apprehend the hit-and-run driver, filing a personal injury claim against that driver may be warranted.
