Rear-End Collision in Camden County

crash test

A two-vehicle collision occurred near the intersection of Highway 5 and Petunia Road in Camden County on the morning of Wednesday, December 23rd. At approximately 11:40 a.m. that day, a 1989 Cadillac El Dorado allegedly rear-ended a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada. The Oldsmobile was attempting to turn left just north of Petunia Road when it was struck from behind by the El Dorado. The driver of the El Dorado, an 87-year-old man from Roach, sustained serious injuries during the incident and was transported from the scene by local emergency medical services to Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach. According to reports issued by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, no other injuries resulted.

The National Safety Council has collected and analyzed data indicating that more than 2.5 million rear-end collisions occur in the U.S. each year. Rear-end collisions are the most common type of collision, and whiplash frequently results for the victims involved in them.

It is important that drivers follow some basic safety guidelines to prevent experiencing a rear-end collisions. Some of the most effective means of reducing the risk of having a rear-end collision include:

  • Allow a three-second distance minimum between cars and to extend that distance during times of poor visibility or adverse weather conditions.
  • Slow gradually to a stop and to activate the turning signal well in advance of any upcoming turns.
  • Check the rearview and side-view mirrors as frequently as possible.
  • Look further ahead on the roadway to enhance the ability to anticipate upcoming obstacles.
  • Perform routine vehicle maintenance to ensure that all brake lights are in working order.

Clients say

I can't say enough good things about Price & Randle, LLC.  They do what they say they will do, they kept me informed and most importantly, they listened.  I've used other attorneys in the past, and they never seemed to listen to what I had to say.  When I contacted Duane, I wasn't even sure ...
