Oklahoma City High-Speed Car Crash Causes Critical Injuries
One person remains in critical condition after being ejected during an Oklahoma traffic accident, which officials say, may have been caused by drag racing. According to a News9 report, the high-speed crash occurred on South Western in Oklahoma City. Officials say three cars may have been racing at the time of the accident. The person who was ejected is not expected to survive. It is unclear if anyone else has been hurt or if any of the drivers will be cited for the collision.
Street racing is a serious problem that often has devastating consequences. Motorists who are exceeding the speed limit on city streets can easily lose control of their vehicles or fail to avoid a collision with a slower moving vehicle. When you are racing, the slightest distraction can cause you to break focus, lose control, and fail to avoid obstacles in your path.
A street drag race may be spontaneous or planned. Spontaneous races typically involve two drivers who have pulled up alongside each other and decide to take off as fast as they can. This activity can become deadly if there are pedestrians around or if the quick start results in an all-out race. Planned street races are typically more intricate and can even involve spectators and roadblocks. In either case, serious injuries can occur because motorists are pushing the limits of their driving ability against the capabilities of their vehicles.
Speeding motorists who cause injury accidents can be held criminally and civilly liable for the injuries and damages they cause.
