Car accident claims the life of Missouri driver

Driving while distracted or making poor choices behind the wheel may lead a driver to quick reactions that can easily evolve into a dangerous situation. When a driver loses control of their vehicle, they run the risk of a car accident that can potentially harm other motorists. A Missouri man recently lost his life when he and another vehicle were involved in a car accident.

The tragic crash took place on a local county road when a middle aged man lost control of his vehicle. The report made by the Missouri State Highway Patrol noted that the car veered off the road toward the right shoulder. When the driver attempted to correct the swerve, the quick move forced his car to travel across his lane and into the opposite side of the road.

Fatal Missouri car accident leaves family with questions, concern

Driving on curvy roads can limit visibility and require a motorist to exercise precision and caution. When a person fails to maneuver appropriately, they risk swerving from their lane and causing a serious car accident. A recent fatal car accident in Missouri took the lives of three people. A van collided with another vehicle on a highway that is considered dangerous.

The tragic crash took place on a part of a Missouri highway that is made up of sharp curves and hills. A young family traveled the winding road in their van when a vehicle headed in the opposite direction crossed the dividing line. The large sports utility vehicle veered directly into their path and collided head-on with the van.

Child swing recalled after design defect suspected

Ikea has been a popular online retailer for many years and has recently focused on building new locations in key spots across the nation. As Missouri prepares to complete the construction on a new Ikea shopping center, many locals may begin shopping online and may have purchased a product with a design defect. A recent recall for the Ikea children's Gunggung swing came after multiple injuries were reported and an apparent design defect discovered.

Parents have purchased and used suspension swings for decades, allowing their child freedom to swing and play independently in doorways and other attachable locations. The Gunggung swing is a fabric formed harness where a child or baby between the ages of three and seven is placed in and suspended from plastic fittings with metal hooks. The company made the decision to recall the swing after four children suffered injuries.

Medical malpractice settlement reached for woman's death

When an emergency surgery is performed and a person's life is saved, medical malpractice that leads to death is the last thing a Missouri family expects to occur. A man recently settled with a physician he sued for medical malpractice after his wife lost her life following an appendix surgery. The middle aged mother of two was hospitalized while on vacation and admitted for emergency surgery after doctors determined she suffered from appendicitis.

She tragically passed away in her hospital bed two days later after bleeding to death. Following the accident, her spouse reviewed her medical files and came to believe that her tragic death was preventable. He discovered that his wife's blood pressure was dangerously low following the emergency surgery, and the attending physician failed to investigate what the cause may be.

Fatal accident in Missouri takes the life of teen at bus stop

When motorists choose to drive recklessly on Missouri highways, they risk injuring or killing others. Often, dangerous road conditions and inebriated drivers are a toxic recipe for disaster. A young teenager was recently killed in a fatal accident while waiting at a bus stop after being hit by an oncoming car.

The early morning accident took place shortly before sunrise on a local highway. The boy was apparently waiting by the street for his bus to arrive when the vehicle struck him. Authorities believe that street racing in poor weather conditions contributed to the cause of the accident.

Joan Rivers' doctor suspected of medical malpractice

Reports indicate that Joan Rivers' death is currently under investigation for potential medical malpractice by the Department of Health of the state where she died. Some professionals question whether the clinic was properly stocked to handle the elderly patient in the event of a medical emergency. A Missouri patient that suffers medical malpractice may be permanently injured or suffer a fatal injury.

The late actress lost her life following a routine surgery at a clinic when she succumbed to cardiac arrest. An endoscopy was scheduled for her vocal cords, and it was initially unclear if the actress was provided anesthesia which may have induced or contributed to the complications. While the endoscopy procedure was in progress, Joan Rivers' body reacted and created an emergency situation.

Missouri man arrested for DWI after car accident

When a person makes the reckless decision to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they risk causing a serious situation that could inflict severe harm to another person. A Missouri man was recently involved in a car accident and arrested following the crash for potentially driving while intoxicated. Police believe the man was operating his vehicle negligently and have accused him of causing the car accident.

The crash occurred when the middle-aged man suspected of driving while intoxicated drove his sports utility vehicle out of his lane and off the road. His SUV traveled over and across the median dividing the opposite flow of traffic when he collided with another vehicle. The smaller car was driven by a teenager traveling with another teen and two young children.

Elderly Missouri man passes away in car accident

Catastrophic wrecks occur multiple times every year on Missouri highways and tragically claim the lives of numerous victims. When the people involved in a crash do not have the capability or health to heal after suffering an injury, the car accident can leave a family mourning a loved one. A car accident recently took the life of an elderly Missouri man when he was unable to recover after his vehicle collided with another one.

The early morning crash occurred when a man driving a pickup truck attempted to complete a left hand turn across a local highway. As he pulled his vehicle into the road and across the opposite side of traffic, an oncoming truck driven by an elderly man collided with the turning vehicle. Vehicle collisions at high speeds can often result in devastating injuries to those involved.

Potentially spoiled Kraft slices may be product liability

As the school year begins, families will often prepare packed lunches for their children to take to class with them. When the cheese slices that they purchased and place in sandwiches are potentially spoiled, they may have product liability concerns. The Kraft company recently recalled thousands of cases of their American cheese singles that were manufactured and distributed from their Missouri facility for potential defective conditions.

They believe that 7,690 cases of the cheese slices may not have been kept at the appropriate temperature required to keep the product fresh. A total of four varieties of cheese flavors in different ounces and dates were distributed to grocers, sold to consumers and potentially eaten. The company has issued a statement requesting any person who has purchased the cheese to avoid consumption of the product and return it to the store it was purchased from.

Semi-truck involved in fatal accident on Missouri highway

The ability to bring a large and bulky semi-truck to a complete stop when approaching traffic on a Missouri highway may be difficult for a driver who is not prepared or not paying attention. When a large truck fails to brake in time for the traffic jam, it can risk causing a fatal accident. A recent rear-end collision involving two semi-trucks resulted in a fatal accident that involved one other vehicle.

Authorities believe that the morning crash began when a tractor-trailer approached a stretch of road congestion that had accumulated. Although the truck began to slow in an attempt to stop with traffic, he was not able to come to a complete stop and slammed into the back of another semi. The impact caused that truck to be thrown into the back of an SUV stopped in front of it.
