Head-On Collisions in Oklahoma
Head-on collisions usually occur when one driver is driving in the wrong lane due to excessive alcohol consumption, fatigue, mechanical errors, or distractions. There are some cases where drivers are in unfamiliar areas that may not have appropriate road signs, which causes them to end up in the wrong lanes and crashing into other vehicles. No matter the cause, there’s always at least one driver responsible for causing a head-on collision.
The police are working to determine which of these two drivers was in the wrong lane and what caused them to do so in the first place. Depending on their findings, it’s likely that personal injury lawsuits will be filed with the help of an Oklahoma personal injury attorney.
