Three Killed in Oklahoma Car Accident

By Car Accident Help on December 5, 2011

A 23-year-old Tulsa woman and two 26-year-old Coweta men were killed in an Oklahoma car accident involving a suspected drunk driver. According to a Muskogee Phoenix news report, the fatal car accident occurred at Oklahoma 51B and 181st Street near Coweta. Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials say a 44-year-old Porter man lost control of a 2007 Pontiac and struck an oncoming 2010 Chevrolet. The three fatally injured victims were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash and three others were hospitalized with unknown injuries. Officials say the driver of the Pontiac was under the influence of alcohol, and that two of the fatally injured victims were not wearing seatbelts.

According to the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (ODPS), there were 245 fatalities and 3,248 injuries reported as a result of alcohol-related car accidents in Oklahoma in the year 2010. Under Oklahoma Title 47 Section 11-902: “It is unlawful and punishable as provided in this section for any person to drive, operate, or be in actual physical control of a motor vehicle within this state…who has a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or higher within two hours of the arrest.”

The family of someone killed in a DUI collision would be well advised to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who will protect their legal rights and pursue the negligent driver financially on behalf of the victim’s family. In cases involving negligence, compensation may be available for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost future income, and other damages.
