Woman Dies In Head-On Collision With Tractor Trailer

A fatal Missouri head-on truck accident claimed an Eagle Rock resident’s life on Friday morning. The accident occurred on MO-112, 5 miles south of Cassville, Missouri.

Anne L. Davis, 88, of Eagle Rock, Missouri died in the Missouri truck accident. She was traveling in the eastbound lanes of MO-112 in a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu when a 2010 International Truck slammed into her head-on. The reason why the truck driver Jason H. Hessee, 35, of Springfield, Missouri traveled westbound in the eastbound lanes remains unreported.

Davis’s vehicle was totaled, while the International Truck sustained only moderate damage. Emergency services attempted to transport her to Cox South Hospital for medical treatment, but she passed away while in transit. She was pronounced at 12:15pm by Dr. Sweeny.

When a loved one dies in a negligent Missouri head-on truck accident, the emotional impact is devastating. Missouri wrongful death laws allow certain family members to recover monetary compensation to cope with the financial impact of the accident victim’s death. The family may recover for funeral expenses and pecuniary loss. Damages may additionally be recovered for the reasonable value of the support, services, consortium and companionship that the accident victim would have provided if not for the Missouri trucking accident.

Missouri’s wrongful death statute applies to traffic accident cases in which the defendant negligently causes the death of the accident victim. The statute aims to provide monetary compensation to the victim’s family to help with unexpected expenses. The statute also serves to secure compensation for those who relied on the accident victim financially.
