Gainesville, MO (June 17, 2023) – Emergency crews were called to provide assistance on-site at a truck crash that occurred in the Gainesville area and ended in injuries.
According to reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, at around 8:30 a.m., a dump truck driven by a 20-year-old was involved in a collision with a Ford Explorer on Highway 5.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol rushed to the scene of the accident and shut down the highway just three miles south of Gainesville, Missouri.
One person involved in the accident, identified as a 41-year-old female, suffered significant injuries in the crash. She was treated at the scene and rushed by ambulance to Baxter Health in Mountain Home for further medical care.

We hope the woman injured as a result of this crash recovers quickly.
Thousands of truck accidents are reported across the United States on a weekly basis. The unfortunate truth is that many of these accidents take place due to drivers who are careless, negligent, and malicious. Drivers who fail to operate their vehicles safely and with respect for others can cause serious accidents that result in devastating injuries.
Truck accidents happen due to various reasons. Some of the most common ones include driver fatigue, distracted driving, speeding, poor vehicle maintenance, and insufficient training. However, determining who is responsible for these accidents can be complicated as multiple parties, such as the truck driver, trucking company, or even another driver on the road, share liability.
As a result of the complexities of truck accident cases, you will have to perform a thorough investigation into the accident to determine who is at fault for the damages that you have suffered. Identifying the liable party provides you with the ability to sue for lost wages, medical costs, and all of the other damages that you face. Working with a truck accident lawyer can provide you with the best chances of getting justice and making sure that the person who caused your crash is held accountable.
