Bartlesville Head-On Collision Causes Injuries

By Car Accident Help on June 20, 2012

Two Bartlesville residents were injured in an Oklahoma car accident involving a head-on collision. According to a KJRH news report, the head-on collision occurred on Price Road in Bartlesville. Officials say a northbound Mercedes SUV went left of center and crashed head-on into a Mitsubishi Galant. The woman, who was in her 70s, was driving the Mitsubishi and suffered injuries to her leg and chest as well as lacerations to her arms as a result of airbag deployment. The male driver of the Mercedes, a man in his 30s, suffered a head laceration. It is unclear if the driver of the Mercedes will face citations for crossing into oncoming traffic.

Under 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.” Drivers who let their vehicles drift into oncoming traffic may be held liable for the damages they cause.

A driver does not have to be cited for a collision to be held civilly responsible for the victim’s losses. Victims of Oklahoma car accidents only have to prove that the at-fault party was negligent at the time of the collision. Examples of driver negligence include: exceeding the speed limit, fatigued or drowsy driving, driving while distracted, and failing to stay within a lane of traffic.
