A recent night-time auto accident on the Northwest Expressway and Sara Road resulted in the hospitalization of 4 people, 3 of them in critical condition, according to KFOR.com. A pick-up truck heading southbound on Sara Road stopped at the Northwest Expressway stop sign properly, but proceeded to pull out directly in front of a minivan that was traveling westbound on the Northwest Expressway, resulting in a violent crash. All passengers and drivers were injured, one even being ejected from the vehicle.
Although the speed limit on the Northwest Expressway has already been lowered to 55 mph, from 65 mph, multiple accidents continue to occur in the same manner. Vehicles at the stop signs do stop, but pull away without watching for oncoming traffic. The comparatively high speeds of oncoming expressway vehicles make an Oklahoma City auto accident injury inevitable, and potentially fatal. The results of such an accident can include expensive hospital and rehabilitation bills, as well as emotional suffering, for the victim and their family. If there is a responsible party, then they can be held liable for those costs and damages. If you or a loved one have been involved in an auto accident, it is important to seek the advice of a knowledgeable Oklahoma auto accident attorney.
