Truck accident kills Oklahoma woman

There are two things that usually happen when a semi truck collides with a passenger car and neither of them are good: the driver and passengers in the car are either killed or left with injuries that will change their lives forever. That's because the size and weight of an 18-wheeler ? and the momentum it can create ? are no match for any normal 2-axle vehicle.

Sadly, it happened again on an Oklahoma highway in late November. The driver of the semi was on the H.E. Bailey Turnpike around Chickasha when he or she tried to make a prohibited u-turn. Then, a Dodge Journey slammed into the tractor-trailer, before another semi truck collided with the one attempting to make a u-turn, creating a traffic jam that lasted for hours. The woman who was riding in the Dodge was rushed by emergency personnel to the OU Medical Center, but was later pronounced dead from the injuries suffered in the accident.

There was no word about the woman's family, but tragic accidents like these almost always leave behind a grieving family whose loved one was taken from them too soon. In a crash like this, an attorney would look at several factors. Had the truck driver driven too long without sleep? Was he or she under the influence of any drugs or alcohol at the time? Was there anything related to the maintenance of the truck that caused it to be unable to handle the turn?

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a truck accident, an attorney may be able to fight for compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages.
