Man arrested three days after fatal accident

Roads and highways can be dangerous places when careless or reckless drivers are present, whether in Oklahoma or elsewhere in the country. Unfortunately, sometimes, these drivers are involved in fatal accidents because they disregard their basic responsibilities. When such negligence is a contributing factor to someone's death, surviving family members are left with the pain of loss, as well as anger from knowing the death was avoidable.

Car accidents can happen anywhere, but especially in high-volume traffic areas of big cities, such as Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. When a car crash occurs, it often results in damaged property and injuries to those involved. Injuries suffered in a car accident can result in temporary or permanent disability or, in some severe cases, fatalities. When two cars collide, there is a strong possibility that negligence was a contributing factor. If this is the case, someone can be held liable for the victim's damages.

Oklahoma man killed in truck accident

Commercial vehicles or trucks are frequent sights along Oklahoma's roads and highways. Those who drive them must follow strict delivery deadlines to satisfy client expectations. Because trucks are much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, a commercial vehicle accident can cause severe damage to property and injure and kill motorists and pedestrians. Unfortunately, one of these accidents recently took the life of a Monroe man.

Drivers in Oklahoma frequently see a wide variety of trucks and big rigs on both major interstates and state highways as they transport products and materials around the state and the country. Frequently, though, driving around trucks can be intimidating for drivers of much smaller motor vehicles, and they have good reason to be cautious. These huge vehicles can cause enormous damage and kill and injure in the event of a collision.

For some Oklahoma residents, motorcycles are a convenient and sometimes preferred way to travel, especially when the weather is nice. Motorcycles offer an alternative to rising gas costs and make for easier travel in congested areas. However, riding a motorcycle is considerably more dangerous than traveling in other motor vehicles, unfortunately often as a result of other's negligence. In the event of collision with another vehicle, a motorcyclist is at higher risk of being severely injured or killed. Although highly advised, helmets and other protective gear offer only limited protection in the event of a crash.
