Wentzville Intersection Accidents at Wentzville Parkway and I-70

I-70 and I-64 cross in the center of Wentzville, meaning that the city experiences a great deal of traffic from every corner of St. Louis County, despite being on the southernmost side. While this suburb is relatively quiet compared to the rest of the county, the influx of traffic makes the roads extremely dangerous, especially during rush hours. Nowhere is this truer than at the intersection of I-70 and Wentzville Parkway.

Wentzville Parkway is a large road, responsible for a great deal of the traffic through the city. Similarly, I-70 carries most of the eastern and western traffic that goes through the suburb. Understandably, when the two meet, it creates an incredibly busy, and dangerous, intersection. Drivers trying to pass through Wentzville Parkway will have to contend with six on- and off-ramps, as well as two through lanes, and another intersection with Veterans Memorial Parkway immediately after the intersection with I-70 ends.

This much crossing is bad enough, but there are also several traffic lights placed along four different points of Wentzville Parkway. These lights are meant to help control the traffic that will either be getting on or off I-70. However, their placement can make it difficult for drivers to know who exactly has right-of-way, and if a driver fails to notice that the traffic in front of him is slowing down, then the result could be devastating. With how high the volume of traffic in both Wentzville Parkway and I-70 is, you would assume that city planners would ensure the intersection is as smooth and safe as possible – but that is clearly not the case here.

Those who have driven through Wentzville Parkway and I-70 know all too well how dangerous this intersection can be, especially when drivers are negligent. According to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), some of the leading causes of fatal car accidents in Wentzville are:

All drivers owe a duty of care toward those on the road with them. This means that all drivers are expected to drive as safely and responsibly as possible in order to keep others safe. Those who fail this duty can and should be held liable.

If you have become the victim of an intersection accident, then you deserve proper compensation for the damages you have suffered. Car accidents are not easy to recover from, and you likely have a mountain of medical debt to contend with. Thankfully, with the help of an experienced car accident attorney from Page Law, you can make sure that the at-fault driver and their insurance provider cover the costs of your treatment.
