Oklahoma Car Accident Kills Two

By Car Accident Help on December 28, 2011

An 80-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman from Osage County were killed in a car accident after their Dodge pickup was struck by a dump truck. According to a KJRH news report, the fatal Oklahoma truck accident occurred near the Lowe’s on Adams Boulevard in Bartlesville. Officials say the 80-year-old man was making a U-turn when a dump truck struck his pickup. The female passenger died at the scene of the crash and the male driver passed away that night. The driver of the dump truck was not injured and was not cited for the crash.

Under Oklahoma Law, drivers must only make a turn when and where it safe to do so. Under Oklahoma Statute 47-11-604: “No person shall turn a vehicle…unless the vehicle is in proper position upon the roadway.” Drivers must not “move right or left upon a roadway unless and until such movement can be made with reasonable safety.” Additionally, drivers are required to signal appropriately to alert other motorists before they make a turn.

Anytime there is a fatal crash involving a left turn or U-turn, it must be determined if the driver turned at a dangerous time or location, if a signal was used and why the other driver involved was unable to avoid the collision. The family of someone killed in such a tragic accident would be well advised to contact an experienced Oklahoma City car accident wrongful death attorney who will stay abreast of the official investigation and ensure that their legal rights and best interests are protected.

The skilled Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys at Maples Law Firm help families pursue their legal rights in car accident cases where negligence or wrongdoing is involved. Please contact us at (888) 226-6159 for a free and comprehensive consultation.
