Texting Contributed to Oklahoma City SUV Crash

By Car Accident Help on March 24, 2011

An evening high-speed car crash on March 11 resulted in multiple injuries and the near splitting in half of the high-speed driver’s car. According to NewsOK.com, a police report, released today, identifies text messaging as a possible contributing cause of the auto accident.

Investigators determined that the high-speed driver was travelling north at approximately 95 mph before he crashed on Rockwell Ave. south of Wilshire Boulevard. Eyewitness accounts described the car as having veered into southbound lanes and subsequently hit a sport utility vehicle. The high-speed driver was thrown from the car, which was wrecked. His teenage passenger and the occupants of the SUV were taken to hospitals with less serious injuries. The high-speed driver is currently in good condition at OU Medical Center where he remains hospitalized.

According to the original police report, the high-speed driver was cited with complaints of reckless driving, speeding too fast for road conditions and failure to keep on the right side of the road. According to a police report issued today, the teenage passenger in the car had repeatedly told the driver to slow down and stop texting before the accident. The driver has not yet been formally charged.

Distracted driving can have disastrous results. Speeding is already dangerous, as it cuts reaction time while increasing breaking time and distance; but when paired with text messaging, losing control of the vehicle is imminent. Texting while driving or using a cell phone for making calls while at the wheel has become the most common causes of distracted driving. Major Oklahoma car accidents, and the injuries that result, are often caused by drivers who are distracted. A driver who causes a crash and injures other drivers and/or passengers can be held liable for their injuries as well as any emotional hardships that resulted from said crash.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a distracted driver car crash, you have legal rights.
