Single-Vehicle Car Crash Leaves Enid Man Dead

By on February 4, 2011 | Posted in: Dangerous Products

On January 29, an auto accident occurred when a 2007 Nissan pickup ran off the road on Oklahoma 58, according to EnidNews.com, and the 69-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. When the man tried to correct himself, he over-corrected, which caused his pickup truck to veer right and flipped over at least three times. Unfortunately, he was not wearing his seat belt, and the man was ejected from the vehicle, suffering fatal head and chest injuries. It is not known why the vehicle left the road.

While the article states that the cause of the Oklahoma car crash was likely because the driver was “possibly sleepy,” further investigation will determine whether or not that was the true cause. Investigators will want to examine the vehicle to see if one or more of the pickup truck’s components could have failed or if there was some sort of defect that may have contributed to the accident. If it is found that a defective part or mechanical failure contributed to the crash, the victim’s family may be able to file a product liability lawsuit.

Automotive designers, manufacturers, and retailers have a responsibility to consumers to ensure that the vehicles they produce and sell are safe and free of defects that could cause consumers harm. If that responsibility is overlooked and an innocent person is injured or killed, the negligent party can be held accountable under Oklahoma law.
