Four Injured in Head-On Crash Caused by Wrong-Way Driver in Tulsa

By Car Accident Help on January 23, 2012

A 19-year-old woman who was driving the wrong way on the Interstate 44 caused a head-on collision, which sent four people to the hospital with injuries, NewsOn6.com reports. Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials say the woman was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of the freeway when she struck another car head-on. The driver and two passengers of the second car were taken to a Tulsa hospital. They are said to be in stable condition. A teen passenger, also from the car that was hit, was taken to a regional medical center in critical condition. Officials say alcohol was the cause of the crash. An investigation is ongoing.

It is illegal under Oklahoma law to operate a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs under OS § 11-902. It is also against the law to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or higher.

Victims of DUI drivers can seek compensation from him or her to cover damages such as medical expenses, loss of wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, and pain and suffering. In addition to facing criminal charges, DUI drivers can also be held financially responsible for the injuries, damages, and losses they cause.
