Fatal Oklahoma City Rollover Crash Kills 20 Year Old Woman
A 20-year old woman from Oklahoma was tragically killed when the SUV in which she was a passenger lost control and rolled over, ejecting her from the vehicle. According to NewsOK.com, the woman’s two young children, aged one year and three months, sustained minor injuries and the driver of the vehicle has been booked into the Oklahoma County jail for DUI, manslaughter, child endangerment and driving without a license. The crash occurred on the victim’s birthday.
Police are investigating the Oklahoma fatal car crash and have reported that the victim was not wearing a seat belt. According to officials, the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed; however, it is unclear exactly what caused the vehicle to lose control. If high speed or alcohol played a role in causing this tragic accident, the driver could be held liable for the wrongful death of the woman.
