Fiery Crash in Oklahoma City Causes Injuries
Four people were injured in recent Oklahoma City car crash involving a rear-end collision. According to a news report in The Oklahoman, the injury accident occurred on Interstate 240 at Santa Fe in south Oklahoma City. Officials say a 24-year-old Oklahoma City man crashed his car into the back of a pickup carrying four people. Both vehicles veered out of control and hit barrier walls. The pickup burst into flames when the fuel tank ruptured. The 75-year-old male driver of the pickup suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Two of his female passengers, ages 73 and 50, suffered critical injuries and a fourth occupant was treated and released.
There are a number of questions that investigators have to answer following a rear-end collision. Was the driver of the striking vehicle speeding? Was he or she fatigued, drunk, distracted, or otherwise careless? Did the driver of the vehicle in front make a dangerous lane change, slow down, or come to a sudden stop? The answers to these questions will affect liability issues relating to the car accident.
Anyone injured by a negligent driver in Oklahoma can pursue compensation for his or her losses by filing a claim against the at-fault party. Careless and reckless motorists can be held accountable for damages including medical bills, hospitalization, the cost of rehabilitation services, pain and suffering, lost wages, and emotional distress. A skilled car accident attorney will make sure that fair compensation is offered for all of the victim’s losses.
