I-40 Motorcycle Accident Involves Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper

By Car Accident Help on August 25, 2010

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper was injured when his motorcycle lost control, causing him to slide nearly 290 feet across I-40, an article on NewsOK.com stated. The 44-year old trooper was one of two who were merging onto the highway from the Choctaw Road on-ramp. According to the report, something caused the trooper to swerve and hit the other trooper’s motorcycle before sliding across the westbound lanes of traffic. The second trooper was able to keep his bike upright.

The 44-year old man sustained abrasions, scrapes and possibly broken bones, though his condition was not included in the article. He was flown to OU Medical Center for treatment.

It is unclear exactly what caused this Oklahoma motorcycle accident. However, there are a number of possibilities including dangerous road conditions, debris, negligent driving on the part of another motorist, rider error, or a defective or malfunctioning motorcycle component. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper involved in this accident is very lucky, as many motorcycle crashes end much more tragically. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,553 motorcyclists died in 2005, 44% of which resulted from single-vehicle collisions and 56% of which were from multi-vehicle motorcycle accidents.
