Sand Springs Community Bands Together after 2 Teens Die in Car Accident

By Car Accident Help on November 5, 2010

Two Oklahoma high school students were killed in a fatal car crash on Sunday, October 24 according to The Sand Springs Leader. The 16-year-old driver of a 2001 Mercury Cougar was heading east on 61st Street South when, for an unknown reason, the vehicle didn’t stop at a stop sign. Also in the Cougar were two 15-year-old passengers and one 14-year-old passenger. Heading north on 161st West Ave. was the 20-year-old driver of a 1998 Dodge Dakota. Upon entering the intersection, the pickup truck struck the second vehicle on its right passenger door. The two 15-year-old female passengers were killed.

Depending on what the investigation concludes, the parents of the deceased high school students may be able to hold the auto maker, the brake manufacturer or a third party liable for wrongful death in Oklahoma if it is found that the brakes were defective in some way. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2009, there were 30,797 fatal crashes resulting in 33,808 deaths. Of those fatalities, 738 occurred in Oklahoma.

If you have lost a loved one in an Oklahoma auto accident and you think a defective auto part may have contributed to the crash, you could be entitled to compensation for your losses. Manufacturers of vehicles and vehicle components have a responsibility to all motorists to provide safe, durable vehicles which are free of any defects that could cause harm. When auto makers place profit ahead of safety, serious injury and wrongful death can occur. The dedicated Oklahoma City attorneys at The Maples Law Firm have years of experience handling a wide variety of auto accidents. You deserve to know your rights and our lawyers can ensure that those rights are not violated in a court of law. To find out more about The Maples Law Firm, call us today at 1-888-429-0609.
