Kansas Turnpike SUV Accident Takes Four Lives, Injures Fifth Person

By Car Accident Help on March 16, 2010

An SUV accident on the Kansas Turnpike resulted in the deaths of four people and the injury of one more near the Kansas-Oklahoma state border. According to a kansascity.com article, the accident took place when the driver of the SUV attempted to make a U-turn in front of a semitrailer and the two vehicles collided. It was not discussed whether a driving infraction was committed at the time of the incident, or if any other negligent action played a determining role in causing the accident.

The Wellington, Kansas accident took the lives of two males, ages 39 and 27, and two females, ages 22 and 23. A 27-year-old male was also seriously injured during the accident and taken to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. The driver of the semitrailer was not injured and did not require medical attention. Although it was not stated in the report, a more thorough investigation into the cause of this accident will undoubtedly take place.

Accidents involving large vehicles, particularly trucks, can be especially catastrophic. Two of the four individuals killed in the above mentioned incident were thrown from the SUV, while the other two were pinned inside the vehicle. Generally speaking, semi-trailer truck accidents are capable of affecting a larger number of people than collisions that involve smaller passenger vehicles.

In any event, negligence or reckless behavior has no place on Oklahoma roads and highways, and all individuals found responsible for exhibiting such behavior can be held accountable for it. An experienced Oklahoma truck accident attorney will seek compensatory damages on behalf of injury victims, fighting to ensure that their rights are protected.
