Taxi Driver and Passenger Injured in Oklahoma City Head-On Collision

By Car Accident Help on February 18, 2013

A taxi driver is fighting for his life after a wrong way driver struck his vehicle head-on, News9 reports. Officials say the head-on collision occurred on Interstate 235 near Interstate 44 in Oklahoma City. According to police, a 29-year-old man was driving a white van north in the southbound lanes of traffic when it crashed into the Yellow Cab taxi.

The 37-year-old taxi driver has been listed in critical condition. The backseat passenger in the taxi was extremely sore and suffered a number of cuts and bruises. The driver of the van was hospitalized with unknown injuries. It is unclear why he was traveling the wrong way or if alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash.

Some of the most devastating Oklahoma car accidents involve head-on collisions. These types of accidents can occur when a vehicle veers into oncoming traffic or when a motorist simply drives the wrong way in traffic. Under Oklahoma Statute 47-11-308-C, it is a misdemeanor to drive the wrong way on a one-way street. Under Oklahoma Code 11-311(a), whenever a highway has been divided into two roadways by a space or physical barrier, every vehicle shall be driven only upon the right-hand roadway.

There are a number of potential causes of wrong-way accidents. Fatigued driving, impaired driving, and excessive speeds are some of the most common reasons these types of serious injury crashes occur. Drivers who are responsible for these types of devastating collisions may be held accountable for their wrongdoing.

Attorney Ray Maples and the legal team at Maples Law Firm have years of experience holding negligent drivers liable for the damages they cause. We offer free consultations at (888) 226-6159 to anyone who has been injured in an Oklahoma traffic accident.
