Oklahoma Head-On Crash Results in 7 Fatalities

By Car Accident Help on October 3, 2012

At least seven people were killed in an Oklahoma car accident involving a head-on collision. According to The Associated Press, the fatal crash occurred along Highway 412 near Elmwood in the Oklahoma Panhandle. Officials say a speeding Chevrolet Suburban crossed the centerline and crashed into a van carrying at least seven workers on their way to a Texas meatpacking plant. Both drivers and five passengers in the van were killed. It is unclear what caused the Suburban to cross into oncoming traffic.

Many of the most devastating crashes involve head-on collisions. According to Oklahoma Statute 11-311: “Whenever any highway has been divided into two or more roadways by leaving an intervening space or by a physical barrier or clearly indicated dividing section so constructed as to impede vehicular traffic, every vehicle shall be driven only upon the right-hand roadway unless directed or permitted to use another roadway by official traffic control devices or peace officers.”

The family of a victim of an Oklahoma fatal crash can pursue compensation for their loss by filing a wrongful death claim against the at-fault driver. A skilled car accident attorney can help a family pursue compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost future wages, and other damages. A personal injury lawyer will make sure that the at-fault parties in such cases are held accountable for their actions.

The experienced Oklahoma auto accident wrongful death lawyers at the Maples Law Firm help families get fair compensation following a tragic accident. Our wrongful death lawyers offer free consultations at (888) 226-6159 to anyone who has lost a loved one in a fatal crash.
