Icy Roads Lead to Fatal Oklahoma City Car Accident

By Car Accident Help on February 15, 2012

A driver was killed in an Oklahoma car accident in Stephens County after he lost control of his vehicle on the ice and snow and ran over the traffic signal control box. According to a news report in The Oklahoman, the accident occurred at the end of the northbound exit ramp from the Lake Hefner Parkway at Hefner Road in Oklahoma City. No other vehicles were involved. An investigation is ongoing.

Snow and sleet wreaked havoc on Oklahoma’s roadways Monday. Several accidents have been reported over the weekend as well. During winter weather, it would be in the best interests of motorists to slow down and take several precautions that might help prevent these tragedies.

Driving on ice can be tricky. Not all cars respond in the same way to icy or slippery roadways. That’s why AAA recommends that motorists practice slow-speed maneuvers on an empty snow or ice covered parking lot. It is also important that you familiarize yourself with your vehicle’s braking system and tire traction.

Also, the distance needed to stop on ice is twice as long as under normal driving conditions. It is recommended that motorists maintain at least a three-car distance from the vehicle in front in icy conditions. Be wary of black ice which is almost always invisible to drivers’ eyes. Be careful when you drive your car into shaded areas, and slow your vehicle down during your approach.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an Oklahoma City car accident, the experienced Oklahoma car accident lawyers at The Maples Law Firm can help you obtain the compensation you need and rightfully deserve. Please contact us at 1(888) 226-6159 for a free and comprehensive consultation.
