The two vehicles were severely damaged in the crash. The Ford had to be towed from the scene by Don’s Wrecker.
Two people involved in the crash were injured. EMS rendered aid to 33-year-old Jerrell Johnson and 54-year-old Anita Akers before transporting both victims to Bothwell Hospital for further care.

Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, tens of thousands of motorists in Missouri are involved in collisions, with some crashes leading to severe injuries requiring hospitalization. Bone fractures, trauma to the brain, spinal cord injuries, and other life-altering injuries are all too common. The impact of motor vehicle accidents goes beyond physical and mental well-being, as victims often face overwhelming financial burdens as well.
The costs of medical treatment and vehicle repairs can quickly reach tens of thousands of dollars, which is only made worse due to the loss of wages that victims are often forced to endure during recovery. Many victims are left permanently disabled, unable to return to work. Seeking legal guidance immediately after a crash is crucial, especially for those injured due to the negligence of other drivers. Compensation may be available to cover medical expenses and future needs. Missouri's responsive and skilled car accident attorney can guide victims through their legal rights.
