OKC Student in Critical Condition after Campus Collision

By on November 10, 2014 | Posted in: Intersection Accidents

According to a report by NewsOK.com, on the morning of November 7, an Oklahoma State University student was hit by a pickup truck while riding his bicycle on campus. Later in the afternoon, he was reported to be in critical condition.

Authorities stated that the accident occurred around 9:30 a.m. at the intersection of Washington Street and Hall of Fame Avenue. Reportedly, the driver of the pickup, a fellow student, was turning left onto Hall of Fame Ave. eastbound when the bicyclist came from the north and collided into the right front corner of the pickup.

The bicyclist was allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed without brakes. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. He was flown to a hospital in Oklahoma City.

A spokesman with Oklahoma State University said that no traffic citations were issued.

Left-turn collisions are among the most common types of intersection accidents between motor vehicles and bicycles. Usually this type of crash happens because the motorist does not make the necessary checks before turning. In such a case, the bicyclist victim may pursue damages against the liable motorist, including medical costs, lost wages during recovery, pain and suffering and more.
