Oklahoma City Intersection Crash Proves Fatal

By Attorney Ray Maples on February 5, 2013 - Comments off

One person was killed in a recent Oklahoma City car accident involving two vehicles. According to a news report in The Oklahoman, the fatal crash occurred at South Lincoln Boulevard and East Sheridan Avenue in Oklahoma City. It is not clear from the report why the two vehicles collided or how the crash could have been prevented.

Intersections are where many of Oklahoma’s most devastating car accidents occur. It is all too common for motorists to carelessly run through stop signs or red lights. According to Oklahoma Statute 47-11-201, “The driver of any vehicle shall obey the instructions of any official traffic-control device applicable thereto placed in accordance with the provisions of this act.”

There are many questions that must be asked following a fatal Oklahoma intersection accident. Was one of the drivers speeding or under the influence of alcohol? Was the stop sign or traffic light obscured by foliage? Was one of the motorists using a cell phone, navigation system, or other distracting device? Was the at-fault driver fatigued or actually asleep at the wheel? These and many other questions must be answered in order to determine who was at fault.
