Remembrance ceremony takes place in Oklahoma City

Yesterday was the 17th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh set off a bomb inside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building killing 168 people.

The bombing shook the state of Oklahoma, and fear for safety was felt by people all over the state. The Oklahoma City Memorial Building was erected as a tribute to the innocent victims of the bombing. Each year on April 19th at 9:02 a.m. the city observes 168 seconds of silence to honor the victims.

The 17th annual Remembrance Ceremony took place yesterday at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. People gathered at the building to distribute flowers to the memorial site, where a chair for each victim is sprawled out across a lawn. Timothy McVeigh was convicted of the bombing, and was executed in 2001.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol celebrates 75th birthday

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol was founded on April 20, 1937, and this year it celebrates it’s 75th birthday.

One of the things that brought the Oklahoma Highway Patrol into the national spotlight was the arrest of the Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh. An Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer was working in Oklahoma City when he noticed a vehicle without it’s proper tags traveling on the roadways. He pulled the vehicle over, and evidently caught the notorious bomber within 75 minutes of the bomb exploding.

Although the technology has changed throughout the years that the patrol has been in place, their main focus has been maintained. That focus is centered on traffic safety. Patrol officers are still trying to maintain order on roadways throughout the state of Oklahoma.

If you have been involved in a car accident in Oklahoma due to the negligence of someone else, please contact the Oklahoma car accident lawyers of the Abel Law Firm by calling 405-239-7046 today.
