Oklahoma woman dies after upstate New York car accident

A Mustang, Oklahoma, woman has been killed after she was involved in a car accident in upstate New York.

The woman had been visiting family in the Warrensburg, New York, area. Authorities believe that she had been at a nearby bar and was driving the wrong way at 85 mph when she struck a commercial truck.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck was not seriously injured.

Local authorities have hesitated to call this a drunk driving accident. They are performing a toxicology test per standard procedure.

As we head into summer, with its rotating schedule of barbecues, picnics and gatherings with family and friends, we hope this sad incident will serve as a reminder of how important it is to drink only in moderation if you have to drive.

People who drive when they are intoxicated put others at great risk. It simply is not fair that one person's irresponsibility puts the safety or even lives of other innocent people in danger.

If you are ever hurt in a car accident, be it a drunk driving accident or otherwise, please do not make the mistake of thinking it was simply an unfortunate twist of fate and that you have no avenues to pursue recompense for what happened to you.

Many car accident victims choose to seek redress through legal means. While not every lawsuit is successful, the ones that are often go a long way toward ameliorating the harm that has come to the blameless victim.
