Lawyer Discusses Tragic Consequences Of Alleged Wrong-way Driving

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says that it received reports of an erratic driver shortly before there was a call regarding a crash on the Will Rogers Turnpike at about 6 p.m. on Friday, July 31.

Alleged Wrong-way Driver

The OHP report says that a 32-year-old female motorist driving a 2014 Chevy Malibu was allegedly eastbound in the westbound lanes when her vehicle collided with a black 2014 Ford pickup and a yellow 2004 Chevy Colorado.

Loss of Life Reported

The driver of the Malibu and the 40-year-old man driving the Ford pickup both died at the scene. The three occupants of the Chevrolet Colorado, a 45-year-old male, a 24-year-old male and a 22-year-old male, did not require medical treatment. Witnesses reported seeing the Ford pickup burst into flames at impact.

Authorities closed the turnpike at Verdigris Gate (mile marker 248) for approximately two hours so that investigators and cleanup crews could complete their work, according to News 6.

Although the investigation into this particular accident is ongoing, victims of negligent conduct on the state’s roadways do have recourse in civil court. When it is reasonable to assert that negligence led to injuries or death, it is possible to seek compensation for lost wages, unpaid medical bills and pain-and-suffering. It is possible for survivors of those killed to seek compensation for loss of companionship and burial expenses.

If you or a loved one is a victim in a traffic crash, it is possible to speak with a wrongful death lawyer about the matter. Our firm offers such a consultation without cost or obligation. To ask your questions, or for further information, please contact us.
