Oklahoma City Woman Killed in Rollover Accident

By on September 17, 2012 | Posted in: Auto Accident Wrongful Death

A 33-year-old Oklahoma City woman was killed in a Jefferson County car accident when the vehicle in which she was a passenger rolled nearly two times. According to The Capital-Journal, the fatal car crash occurred on the westbound US-24 highway east of the junction with K-4 highway east of Topeka. Officials say both vehicles were traveling west when one of them struck the passenger side of the other. The fatally injured victim was in the car that rolled over as a result of the collision. The other occupants, who were also from Oklahoma City, were wearing seatbelts and appeared to be uninjured. The 67-year-old driver of the other vehicle was not injured. It is not clear if she will be cited for the fatal collision.

Many highway collisions result from a failure to maintain a lane of traffic. Under Oklahoma Statute 47: 11-309: “A vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practicable entirely within a single lane … A vehicle shall not be moved from the lane until the driver has first ascertained that the movement can be made with safety and then given a signal, not less than the last one hundred (100) feet traveled by the vehicle, of his intention to change lanes.”

The family of someone killed by a negligent driver can seek financial compensation for their losses by filing a wrongful death claim against the at-fault driver. In such cases, compensation may be available for funeral expenses, lost future wages, suffering, loss of companionship, and other related damages.
