Oklahoma Motorcyclist Injured after Rear Ended by Car
A 75-year-old Claremore man was seriously injured in an Oklahoma intersection accident when his motorcycle was rear-ended by a 2012 Dodge pickup. According to a News On 6 report, the motorcycle accident occurred near County Road 380 and County Road 412 in Rogers County. Officials say the motorcyclist slowed down for stopped traffic when he was rear-ended by a driver who accidently hit the gas instead of the brakes. The victim has been listed in critical condition. It is not clear if the 76-year-old driver will face charges or citations.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office’s 2010 Crash Facts report, there were 1,662 motorcycle accidents in Oklahoma that year.
