Missouri Car Accidents

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, there were 142,966 accidents in Missouri in 2011. As a result of these accidents, 51,061 people were injured and 786 people were killed. Although some accidents were caused by unforeseeable circumstances such as severe weather, the large majority of vehicle collisions are caused by a careless driver.

Of negligent driving accidents, the largest percentage is brought about by distracted drivers who are too focused on the cellular device, GPS, radio, food, and many others. In 2011, inattentive drivers caused 22.5% of accidents, which in all had 10,000 injuries and 168 fatalities. Speeding also plays a major role in accidents, causing about 23,998 accidents, 7,568 injuries, and 271 fatalities. Motorists also produced issues when they drove too fast for the weather conditions, tailgated to closely behind other drivers, veered into the wrong lane, failed to obey traffic laws, or didn't yield the right of way.

In addition to these causes, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs was a dangerous contributor. DUI was the reason behind 5% of all car crashes, and 6.5% of rural accidents. About 6,630 were injured by a drunk driver, and 27% of fatal accidents involved alcohol. Drivers that choose to drive after they were knowingly under the influence of a substance that impairs driving have a duty to compensate the victim.

City of Grandview, MO

According to the 2010 census, Grandview has a population of 24,475 persons. Grandview is part of Jackson County and considered to be a suburb of Kansas City. The city is made up of 48% White, 41% African American, 10% Latino, and other races like Asian, Pacific Islander, and Native American. The median household income is around $44,000, with about 18.5% of citizens have obtained a Bachelor's degree or higher.

Grandview began as a farming community in the late 1800s. When residents became tired of traveling to pick up their mail a full-day away, they decided to petition the government to become their own city. According to town legend, the town was named after a couple of prominent residents declared after looking out on the landscape that the city had such a "grand view". The name stuck and the city was henceforth called Grandview.

One of the most prominent residents of Grandview is former president Harry S. Truman, who grew up on his family's 600 acre farm in Grandview. He formed the city's first Masonic Lodge and served as postmaster. After becoming president, Harry wanted to build his Presidential Library in his home town, however, he was vetoed by others. The family's farm has no become a national landmark and is maintained by the National Park Service. In addition to visiting the Truman Farm, visitors can also enjoy Longview Lake, Grandview Historical Depot, or one of the many parks in the town.
