Oklahoma City Car Accidents on Northwest Expressway Could Have Been Prevented

By Car Accident Help on March 28, 2011

Two car wrecks within days of each other demonstrate how dangerous the Sara Rd. and Northwest Expressway intersection is, according to KFor.com. Earlier last week, there was an Oklahoma 4-injury car crash where 3 people were left in critical condition, and, on Friday March 25, a tanker truck, loaded with 8,000 gallons of fuel, exploded when it collided with a car driven by a teenage girl. Neither the truck driver nor the teenage girl was seriously injured though both tanker truck and car were on fire. The fire burned for 90 minutes before it was extinguished by firefighters. Both car wrecks occurred because a driver, attempting to cross the Northwest Expressway, was hit by oncoming traffic.

The manager of nearby Sundance Airport requested that Oklahoma City install a stoplight at the intersection of Sara Rd. and the Northwest Expressway 3 years ago. In 2008, the city completed a study, after which the stoplight was approved, however never installed. It is on the City Traffic Engineer’s “to-do” list, pending proper funding. Finding the money necessary to increase safety should be a priority. Read the rest »

Four Injured in Oklahoma City Northwest Expressway Car Crash

By Car Accident Help on March 22, 2011

A recent night-time auto accident on the Northwest Expressway and Sara Road resulted in the hospitalization of 4 people, 3 of them in critical condition, according to KFOR.com. A pick-up truck heading southbound on Sara Road stopped at the Northwest Expressway stop sign properly, but proceeded to pull out directly in front of a minivan that was traveling westbound on the Northwest Expressway, resulting in a violent crash. All passengers and drivers were injured, one even being ejected from the vehicle.

Although the speed limit on the Northwest Expressway has already been lowered to 55 mph, from 65 mph, multiple accidents continue to occur in the same manner. Vehicles at the stop signs do stop, but pull away without watching for oncoming traffic. The comparatively high speeds of oncoming expressway vehicles make an Oklahoma City auto accident injury inevitable, and potentially fatal. The results of such an accident can include expensive hospital and rehabilitation bills, as well as emotional suffering, for the victim and their family. If there is a responsible party, then they can be held liable for those costs and damages. If you or a loved one have been involved in an auto accident, it is important to seek the advice of a knowledgeable Oklahoma auto accident attorney. Read the rest »
