SUV Removed From Springs River Days After Fatal Oklahoma Car Crash

By Car Accident Help on February 18, 2011

The SUV that was involved in a fatal crash on February 3 that left three people dead was removed from Spring River on Saturday, February 12, according to NewsOn6.com. The accident occurred when the vehicle was traveling west on I-44 and hit a patch of ice, which caused the SUV to slam into a concrete wall before plunging 61 feet into the river below. Six people survived the accident while three others perished. Crews were unable to remove the vehicle from the river for over a week due to the intense storms that have been hitting the state.

Driving in snow and ice can be a daunting task, even to the most experienced motorist. It is of utmost importance for motorists to practice safe driving during snowy and icy weather or, if possible, avoid driving altogether. If you must drive during harsh weather conditions, there are a few precautions you can take that can help you in case of an emergency.

  • Keep a shovel, cat litter or sand, snow chains, and a windshield scraper in your car at all times.
  • Reduce your speed and keep three times the amount of space you normally would between you and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Keep your windshield clean to prevent visibility issues.
  • If you start to skid, pump your brakes. Never slam on them.
  • Do not use cruise control.
