Inattentive Teen Looks for Gum but Finds Back of Truck in Rogers County Crash

By Car Accident Help on March 18, 2010

Driver inattention never ends well. Distracted driving practices, whether it is talking or texting on a cell phone, carrying on a conversation with another passenger in the vehicle, or simply taking one’s eyes off the road, often end in a vehicular accident of some kind, which can result in motorist personal injury. A recent tulsaworld.com article explains that a crash in Rogers County involving two vehicles occurred simply because one of the motorists was searching for a piece of gum at the time of the collision.

Reportedly, the accident took place on Oklahoma 266 going westbound where the road intersects with 4100 Road. A 1995 Ford driven by a 58-year-old Claremore man, while waiting to make a right-hand turn onto 4100 Road, was struck from behind by a 19-year-old motorist driving a 2005 Jeep. A 55-year-old Morton man who was a passenger in the truck sustained head and internal injuries, and was listed in critical condition at St. Francis Hospital. The Claremore man sustained arm injuries, while the 19-year-old was not injured at all. According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the teenager was allegedly looking into the center console of the Jeep at the time of the crash, apparently searching for a piece of gum.

Driver inattention results in far too many Oklahoma car accidents each year. However, reckless driving habits can take on a variety of different forms, including traveling at excessive speeds greater than the posted speed limit, failure to yield at stop signs and when necessary at intersections, and operating motor vehicles while under the influence of either drugs or alcohol. Regardless of the type of negligent action, the party responsible for that action can and should be held liable for the exhibited negligence. At the Maples Law Firm, our experienced Oklahoma City car accident attorneys will examine the circumstances of your accident, and seek damages from negligent parties on your behalf.
