Multi-car pileup in rural Missouri just 1 of 63 crashes in the western part of the state

Monday, Jan. 20th 2020

 It was a busy day for first responders throughout the state as ice and snow blanketed western Missouri for the first half of the day.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop A posted several pictures of a multi-car pileup, including several that had flipped upside down, to Twitter at 7:14 p.m. on Jan. 11. The crash happened on 36 Highway, just outside of Meadville, a town 15 miles to the east of Chillicothe.

In the tweet, the patrol stated a trooper had stopped to help one driver who had slid off the road, when he saw a truck crash in his rear-view mirror. It came to a rest only about 50 feet from the trooper’s cruiser.

This was just one crash out of 63 between midnight and 8 p.m., the patrol stated in another tweet. In the western part of the state, there were 248 calls for service, 135 stranded drivers and 63 crashes. Nine of the crashes ended in someone getting injured.

However, no one was killed at the time of the tweet.

Troop A covers 13 counties on the western side of Missouri, including the counties that surround the Kansas City metro.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.

This is an excellent law firm. They helped me out after an accident and did an awesome job. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a good lawyer.” – Toni B.
