Oklahoma City Car Accidents on Northwest Expressway Could Have Been Prevented

By Car Accident Help on March 28, 2011

Two car wrecks within days of each other demonstrate how dangerous the Sara Rd. and Northwest Expressway intersection is, according to KFor.com. Earlier last week, there was an Oklahoma 4-injury car crash where 3 people were left in critical condition, and, on Friday March 25, a tanker truck, loaded with 8,000 gallons of fuel, exploded when it collided with a car driven by a teenage girl. Neither the truck driver nor the teenage girl was seriously injured though both tanker truck and car were on fire. The fire burned for 90 minutes before it was extinguished by firefighters. Both car wrecks occurred because a driver, attempting to cross the Northwest Expressway, was hit by oncoming traffic.

The manager of nearby Sundance Airport requested that Oklahoma City install a stoplight at the intersection of Sara Rd. and the Northwest Expressway 3 years ago. In 2008, the city completed a study, after which the stoplight was approved, however never installed. It is on the City Traffic Engineer’s “to-do” list, pending proper funding. Finding the money necessary to increase safety should be a priority.

It is the responsibility of a city, and its Department of Transportation, to ensure the safety of their citizens, and drivers. It is believed that many accidents, injuries, and fatalities could have been prevented had the city installed the Northwest Expressway and Sara Rd. stoplight when approved in 2008. Not only are drivers liable for accidents, injuries, and fatalities caused by their actions, but city officials or departments can be just as liable for injuries and fatalities should they be found negligent.
