Roach, operating a 2016 Jeep Wrangler, tried to pass a vehicle in the outside lane of the highway. While passing, Roach lost control of his vehicle in a curve. The vehicle left the roadway to the right, colliding with a stop sign and a fence, before rolling several times. Roach, who was not wearing his seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. He was severely injured in the crash and is listed in “extremely critical” condition at St. Francis Hospital. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol investigated the collision. Ultimately, authorities believe that speeding is the cause of the crash. We will update you if any further details become available.
Speeding is responsible for numerous accidents in Oklahoma. Sometimes an accident results from speeding along with other factors. Other times, speeding alone is to blame. Authorities in this case apparently believe that speeding is the only cause.
It is important to keep in mind that speed can be deadly. Many times, people are in a rush to get where they are going. An accident which takes place at highway speeds has deadly consequences. It is important to get where you are going safely than to drive too fast and end up in a serious accident.
