Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Drugs and alcohol are one of the top causes of vehicle accidents in the United States. Driving under the influence is so dangerous because drugs and alcohol alter an individual’s cognitive functions. Alcohol slows down an individual’s nervous system as well as their hand-eye coordination. Alcohol also slows down body function and perceptive capabilities, causing drivers to have delayed reactions to their surroundings. Our condolences go out to the friends and families of the two people who lost their lives in this collision. Once the police get to the bottom of what caused this accident, wrongful death lawsuits could be filed with the help of an attorney.
