Bristow Man Killed in Collision with Semi Truck

By Car Accident Help on July 8, 2013

A 51-year-old Bristow man was killed in an Oklahoma car accident after a semi truck struck his 2000 Chevy truck. According to a News On 6 report, the fatal truck accident occurred on Highway 66 where it intersects with South 501st West Avenue in Creek County. Officials are still trying to determine the cause of the crash, but it appears that the fatally injured victim was traveling west and the semi truck driver was heading east. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports that neither man was wearing a seatbelt.

The Bristow man was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash after rescue crews struggled for nearly two hours to free him from his crushed vehicle. The 40-year-old truck driver from Bartlesville was thrown from his cab during the collision. He was transported to a Tulsa hospital in stable condition.

All head-on collisions and wrong way accidents are dangerous, but these types of collisions are particularly destructive when one of the vehicles involved is a large truck. In such cases, it must be determined if one of the drivers was impaired, distracted, fatigued, or otherwise negligent. In cases where a truck driver is determined to have been at fault, both the truck driver and his or her employer can be held liable.

Families of deceased truck accident victims can file what is known as a “wrongful death claim” seeking compensation for damages such as medical and funeral costs, lost future income, and loss of love and companionship. Our Oklahoma lawyers have a long and successful track record of helping injured victims and their families obtain fair and full compensation for their significant losses.
