    Narrow Near-Miss Following Crash in St. Louis

    At any given moment, one will see countless drivers traveling on Kansas City’s roads and highways. In order for these many motorists to successfully share the road with each other, they may need to adopt an attitude of “we’re all in this together.” Being mindful of others on the road may significantly decrease the risk of accidents due to more respect being paid between drivers. Two prime examples of where collective teamwork is needed to avoid accidents include driving in poor weather conditions or when others are stopped (for whatever reason) on the side of road. Local drivers will may encounter both such scenarios.

    The dangers that come with not paying attention to where others are on the road at all times were on full display in an accident that recently occurred in St. Louis. Icy road conditions were said that be the contributing factor in accidents involving over 50 cars in this area in the last couple of months. During one accident in particular, a woman’s vehicle lost control and ran into a semi-truck that was in front of her. Yet she quickly found out that her ordeal was far from over.

    After getting out of the car to assess the damage, the woman narrowly missed being struck by another semi-truck traveling behind her. Sadly, other drivers who find themselves on the side of the road often do not end up being lucky enough to avoid collisions with other cars. Some thought should be given to those motorists who may have not seen the need to try and share the road with others. When they fail in watching out for pedestrians and local drivers, those they injure may want to work with an attorney to help secure compensation for their affected family and/or friends.
