Woman Injured in Oklahoma Motorcycle DUI Crash

By Car Accident Help on July 17, 2012

A 26-year-old woman from Ardmore was injured in an Oklahoma motorcycle accident, which officials report, involved a driver who was under the influence. According to a news report in The Ardmoreite, the motorcycle accident occurred on U.S. Highway 177 north of Dickson. Officials say the 27-year-old man operating the 2012 Harley Davidson was under the influence of illegal drugs when he failed to negotiate a curve. The injured victim was a passenger on the motorcycle at the time of the crash. She has been listed in stable condition with multiple injuries. The motorcyclist was not injured in the crash.

Motorcyclists who choose to ride while under the influence of drugs or alcohol put themselves, their passengers, and anyone else on the roadway at great risk of suffering an injury. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 27 percent of all motorcycle operators involved in fatal crashes had a blood alcohol concentration of over .08 percent in the year 2006. Of the motorcyclists between the ages of 35 and 39 killed in motorcycle crashes that year, 41 percent were over the legal limit. Clearly, drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs are more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than sober riders.

Victims of DUI accidents in Oklahoma can pursue financial compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and suffering by filing a claim against the at-fault driver. This process can become more complicated when the at-fault motorists is a friend or family member. A skilled personal injury attorney can provide a confidential consultation on all of the legal options available for the victim.
