Oklahoma Head-On Collision Proves Fatal

By Car Accident Help on June 24, 2013

A woman was killed in an Oklahoma car accident when the SUV in which she was a passenger was involved in a head-on collision. According to a News 9 report, the fatal crash occurred in the 3100 block of S. Broadway Ave. in Moore. NewsOK reports that the male driver of the southbound SUV may have passed out at the wheel before letting his vehicle cross the centerline where it struck a northbound pickup. The SUV driver’s wife succumbed to her injuries at a nearby hospital. The driver of the pickup and his son were taken to the hospital for examination after complaining of chest pains. The investigation is ongoing.

Head-on collisions often occur because one of the drivers drifts or veers into opposing lanes of traffic. Under Oklahoma Statute 47-11-309-2: “A vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practicable entirely within a single lane and…a vehicle shall not be moved from the lane until the driver has first ascertained that the movement can be made with safety.” Drivers who let their vehicle cross lane divisions demarcated by two solid yellow lines can be held accountable for their actions.

Head-on collisions can result in devastating injuries because of the severity of the impact between the two vehicles. Injuries commonly suffered in head-on collisions include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, bone fractures, and internal injuries. These types of violent crashes also result in fatalities. The most common causes of head-on collisions include excessive speed, distracted driving, drowsy driving, and driving under the influence.

Anyone who has been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence would be well advised to contact an Oklahoma personal injury lawyer who will ensure that their legal rights and best interests are protected.
