According to police, an Imperial woman was injured in a crash in Jefferson County on Wednesday.
Troopers with the Missouri State Highway Patrol report that 40-year-old Imperial resident Michelle L. Wertenberger was driving a 2008 Ford Edge north on Missouri Route 141 around 2 p.m. Investigators say Ms. Wertenberger approached the intersection with Missouri Route 21, where she observed a 1994 GMC Jimmy sport-utility vehicle run a red light.
Ms. Wertenberger was unable to avoid a collision with the SUV, operated by an unidentified male. Paramedics transported Ms. Wertenberger to St. Anthony’s Medical Center for treatment.
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.
