5 Injured in Oklahoma Car Accident

Five people were injured in a two-vehicle Oklahoma car accident Sunday afternoon.

According to officials with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the accident occurred shortly after 3:00 p.m. Sunday on Highway 70. Police say a PT Cruiser failed to stop behind a Mercury Grand Marquis as it was attempting to navigate a left turn onto Lone Oak Road. The two vehicles collided in the intersection.

Driver error most likely caused the wreck, troopers said, but officials said they have responded to several accidents along the same stretch of road in the past.

“We’ve had quite a few accidents on this road in the last year,” said Lt. Scott Hampton with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. “We’ve had a couple of fatalities. We’re not sure what the cause of it is, but most of the time it’s something going on in the cab of the car and the drivers aren’t paying attention.”

The highway was shut down for almost an hour following the crash. Emergency response crews assisted five injured people who all complained of head injuries. Authorities expect all five people to make a full recovery.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of a car accident, you should not have to bear the consequences alone. Please contact the Oklahoma car accident attorneys of the Abel Law Firm by calling 1-800-739-ABEL.
