Posted on December 20th, 2010 by Zane Cagle
A 55-year old teacher from Sedalia, Missouri, was killed in a two-car crash last Friday morning at approximately 6 a.m. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, the driver failed to yield at a stop sign and was hit in the driver’s side door by a 53-year old woman of Otterville, Missouri. The crash occurred at the intersection of Route 135 and Highway 50. The 55-year old woman was entering 50 Highway from Route 135 when the crash occurred.
The Sedalia teacher was pronounced dead at the scene and the Otterville woman was transported by air to the University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri according to the Sedalia Democrat.
Tragic car and truck accidents occur daily and as a result of many factors such as poor visibility, blind spots, distracted driving and negligence. While last Friday’s accident will continue to be investigated regarding causes, motorists that have been involved in an auto accident should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible in order to preserve evidence in an investigation, make insurance claims and safeguard their individual financial futures. When a loved one is taken in an auto accident, frequently they leave behind dependents who will directly suffer from lack of the deceased person’s financial support.
