Accidents with semi-trucks can lead to serious injuries and deaths due to the nature of a collision with such a large vehicle. Sadly, an Oklahoma woman lost her life after colliding with a semi-truck. At this time, there is no information on the exact cause of the deadly accident.
The accident, which happened in Rogers County, involved a semi-truck and a Chevy SUV. The female driver of the SUV crashed into the back of the truck for unknown reasons. The SUV rolled three times, and the driver was ejected from the vehicle. According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol, she was not wearing her seatbelt.
The driver of the SUV was taken to a local hospital with severe injuries. She later died from those injuries. The male passenger in the SUV was also injured but survived the accident. There is no information about what caused the woman to crash into the rear of the truck. Further investigations may be needed to determine who, if anyone, was at fault.
Truck accidents can be very serious
Semi-trucks are large and heavy vehicles, which can make them harder to maneuver than a standard passenger vehicle. Oklahoma drivers must take precautions when navigating around large vehicles on the highway to help prevent accidents. A truck accident that leads to serious injury or death is a very traumatic experience for the family of the victim. If driver negligence can be determined as the cause of such an accident, the victim’s family may have cause to seek compensation from the party responsible.
