One driver’s failure to stop at an intersection sent two people to the hospital Wednesday evening.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Jeptha T. Blackburn, 71, of Wentworth traveled south on County Road 1010 in a 1995 GMC Sierra. About 5:45 p.m. he was hit on his passenger side by a 2004 Ford Taurus driven by 49-year-old Larussell resident Carl E. Bowman. Mr. Bowman did not stop at a stop sign as he traveled west on County Road 2130 at the intersection with County Road 1010.
Mr. Bowman suffered moderate injuries and was taken to Cox South Hospital. Anna M. Gilmore, 21, of Carthage, was in the vehicle with Mr. Bowman. She also suffered moderate injuries. She was airlifted to Freeman Hospital West.
Seeing a copy of the Missouri accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Missouri Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Missouri accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
