Children survive crash caused by their mother's drunk driving

Here in Oklahoma, we all know the dangers of drunk driving. Unfortunately, some people continue to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol, putting themselves, their passengers and others on the road at risk. Sadly, a weekend drunk driving accident in Clayton showed far too clearly the serious consequences of drunk driving

Fatigued driving can have serious consequences, researchers say

Here in Norman, we all know there are many different types of distracted driving. Many of us even witness them every day. We see drivers texting on their cellphones, eating a sandwich, reaching down to grab something on the floor, or turning around to shush the kids in the backseat. It is easy to see how all of these distractions can lead to a car accident. One type of distracted driving, however, is very difficult to spot, but researchers say it is a leading cause of car accidents.

Jury: Driver in 2012 Norman crash guilty of manslaughter

Last week we wrote twice about the ongoing trial of a man involved in a fatal car wreck last year.

The driver of the vehicle he hit, a 36-year-old woman, died at the scene of the car accident.

National Work Zone Awareness Week should bring caution to Norman

Think about the last time you drove by a work zone in Norman. You probably saw a line of large cones sectioning off the area of the road that was under construction. You also probably saw workers using large equipment and working very close to traffic. As a driver, it is easy to think that the cones will protect workers from any oncoming traffic. However, the numbers show that is not always the case.

Drug expert said driver in 2012 crash seemed intoxicated

On Tuesday we wrote about the witness testimony that was heard in the trial of a man who is charged with manslaughter after a 2012 accident caused the death of an Oklahoma City woman. As we've continued to follow the story, further reports say that a former police officer and drug recognition expert who went to the hospital after the fatal accident to evaluate the driver suspected that he was under the influence of prescription medication.

Witnesses to 2012 fatal Norman crash testify in front of jury

More than a year ago, multiple people called 911 to report an erratic driver. One caller told a dispatcher that the man kept drifting over the center line of the road. Although both callers tried to prevent an accident by calling authorities, their efforts were fruitless. While the second caller was on the phone with emergency dispatchers, she witnessed the erratic 54-year-old driver once again cross the centerline and crash head-on into another vehicle. She thought he was intoxicated.
