2011 Missouri Fourth of July Car Crash Statistics

The Missouri State Highway Patrol released its complete list of Fourth of July car accident statistics today. The counting period extended from July 1st to July 4th and over those dates, 259 crashes were reported. According to the report, 10 deaths resulted from traffic crashes over the holiday weekend and 130 injuries were reported as well. 168 individuals were arrested this year for DWI’s.  In comparison to last year, 281 crashes were reported, 134 individuals were injured and 6 fatalities were reported.  Similarly, 169 individuals were arrested for DWI’s last holiday weekend.

Fortunately, there were no boating deaths in Missouri this year.  However, 10 boating crashes were reported and five individuals sustained injuries.  33 individuals were arrested this holiday weekend for boating while intoxicated.  One drowning fatality was also released as a 26-year-old man drowned while attempting to swim across Current River in Carter County, Missouri.  Prayers go out to wounded individuals and the family and friends of all those who passed away this holiday weekend.

Although Fourth of July weekend has come and gone, it is still important that drivers use careful and cautious driving tactics.  While a driver can safeguard himself by driving carefully, he or she cannot be safeguarded from the negligence of others.  If you or a loved one has been injured or even killed in an accident that was caused by the reckless driving of someone else, you may be entitled to compensation in a claim for wrongful death.  Call a Missouri injury lawyer today to discuss your potential case.  Call toll free at 855.402.7274 or at 314.409.7060.
