Oklahoma DUI Collision Causes Injuries

By Car Accident Help on January 20, 2012

A 61-year-old man was injured in an Oklahoma car accident after his vehicle was hit by a suspected drunk driver. According to a news report in the Sand Springs Leader, the injury crash happened on the Oklahoma Highway 99 south of Hominy. Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials say a 36-year-old Sand Springs man was southbound on the highway when he traveled left of center and struck the other vehicle, which was a minivan. The minivan spun 180 degrees and ran off the road, trapping its driver inside. The man was extricated and transported to a Tulsa hospital with leg injuries. He has been listed in stable condition. Troopers determined that the 36-year-old driver who caused the crash was under the influence of alcohol at the time.

Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is illegal under Oklahoma law. Under OS § 11-902, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. It is also against the law to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or higher.

Car accident victims who are injured by drunk drivers in Oklahoma have rights. Drunk drivers, in addition to facing criminal charges, can also be held civilly liable for the injuries, damages, and losses caused. Injured victims can file an Oklahoma personal injury claim against the at-fault driver seeking compensation for damages, such as medical expenses, loss of earnings, hospitalization, physical therapy, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
