Oklahoma City hit-and-run accident injures woman

On July 11, a 34-year-old woman was traveling on State Highway 66 in northwest Oklahoma City when she and another driver were involved in a collision. After the impact, the other driver, a 39-year-old man, exited his car and ran away from the accident scene, according to the police report. The Mustang woman was trapped in her car following the car accident. She was listed in critical condition after being taken to the OU Medical Center.

Risk of car accidents remains high for teen drivers

Parents may feel powerless to fully protect their children from dangers on Oklahoma roads. The statistics behind the sizable premium hike when placing a teen on the family insurance policy paint a bleak picture. In 2010, car wrecks claimed the lives of nearly as many individuals between the ages of 15 and 24 than the combined total of the next two causes of unintentional injury. A number of changes have taken place to reduce the risk of teenage car accidents, but insurance discounts may offer parents a means of reducing risk further.

Antihistamines a danger for drowsy driving

We recently wrote about drowsy driving in our Norman Motor Vehicles Accidents Blog. Drowsy driving is an extremely dangerous behavior with symptoms that are very similar to drunk driving such as the inability to focus and a slowed reaction time.

As you approach the other car, it suddenly veers over the center line and into your path. There is no time to get out of the way, so you brace yourself for a crash. 

Child injured in Oklahoma accident blamed on texting

There are many reasons that motor vehicle accidents occur in the state of Oklahoma. Sometimes they are due to things beyond the control of those involved such as the condition of the road. Other times drivers suffer a medical episode of some sort that leads to a loss in control of a vehicle. Most often however, car crashes are due to the behavior of those behind the wheel.

Pets and driving: a dangerous mix?

We all know that distraction on the roads comes in all forms, but the typical idea that comes to mind is residents in and around Norman using electronics, such as a cellphone or radio, while driving. Although this has been a key issue that needs to be addressed, it has not stopped communities from targeting other forms of distraction. In general, the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration considers distracted driving anything that takes a person's concentration or eyes off the road, or hands off the steering wheel.

Oklahoma City offers free clinic for new drivers

If you were asked to name common causes of car accidents, what would you say? Perhaps drunk driving, distracted driving or disobeying traffic laws are at the top of your list. One factor some people may not consider, but is true for many drivers on Oklahoma roads, is inexperience.
