Sisters die in alleged drunken-driving car accident in Tulsa

These accidents have among the most devastating outcomes of any motor vehicle accident, with serious injuries and death occurring at a rate three times that for cars and light trucks, according to 2011 data recently released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
