In the early evening hours of Thursday, June 14, Elaine and Mathew Hamilton of Atwood, OK, were both injured in a traffic accident on I-57 in Mississippi county. The incident began at approximately 7 pm when a truck operated by Martin Shaw, of Bertrand, MO, attempted to execute an illegal turn, causing the Hamiltons to run into him from behind. Mr. Shaw fled the scene before authorities could arrive. Both Hamiltons suffered significant injury and had to be immediately transported to St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau for further observation and treatment.
A traffic accident can be a painful and traumatic experience. We at the law offices of Kevin J. Roach wish the Hamiltons a quick and thorough recovery.
