Washington County Car Accident Injures Six and Kills One

On December 9, 2012, six people were injured and a baby was killed on Highway 21 near Highway CC in Washington County near Washington State Park.

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, Britney LaChance of Potosi was traveling with her six month old son Sebastian Garvin when she lost control of her vehicle and hit a pick-up truck. The passengers in the pick-up truck also suffered injuries. They are: Amanda Stringer; Angela Stringer; Jimmie Stringer; Lillie Stringer; and Michael J. Stringer.

Given the fatal crash it is likely the Missouri Highway Patrol will perform a full accident reconstruction. There are many issues that arise from motor vehicle accidents, including vehicle conditions, road design, physical evidence, and driver’s reaction time. Therefore, it is important for the lawyers who represent individuals involved in an accident to understand traffic regulations and whether the cause is driver error or vehicle defect.
