A rear-end collision on Missouri Route EE Thursday afternoon left a Winfield woman injured.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports 65-year-old Geraldine A. James suffered moderate injuries in the 3:48 p.m. crash, which occurred at Argent Oaks Drive.
The report says she had slowed in her northbound GMC Envoy, preparing to turn onto Argent Oaks, when the rear of her vehicle was struck by a Pontiac Vibe driven by 19-year-old Richard A. Jansen of Elsberry.
Ms. James was reportedly taken to Lincoln County Medical Center. Mr. Jansen was not listed as injured in the report.
According to the National Safety Council, more than 2.5 million rear-end collisions are reported every year, making them the most common type of automobile accident.
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.
