Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Vehicle accidents occur daily for various reasons, but the most popular causes are distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, reckless driving, and improper turning. Distracted driving occurs when drivers decide to partake in other activities while driving, such as using a cell phone, chatting with a passenger, eating a meal, putting on makeup, and more.
All of these examples might appear harmless, but distracted driving is highly dangerous because all it takes is a few seconds of not paying attention for an accident to happen. Even a small fender bender can cause extreme damages to all parties involved. The police are currently working to find out what led up to this crash, but our hearts go out to the family of the deceased in this terrible accident. Should they wish t0pursue one, Wyche’s family could file a wrongful death lawsuit to help cover funeral expenses and the emotional burden of this tragedy.
