Oklahoma man involved in a fatal car crash that kills 1

As summer approaches, many throughout the United States are bringing out their motorcycles to enjoy the temperate weather. Motorcycles are an excellent way to travel during warmer months, but they are also fraught with danger due to the driver's exposure in the event of an accident. A recent fatal car crash in Oklahoma claimed the life of a young woman who was simply out for a relaxing ride with her parents.

According to authorities, the 20-year-old woman and her parents were enjoying a late spring day when the accident occurred. A speeding car hit the two motorcycles from behind. Court documents state that after hitting the motorcycles, the car rolled three or four times before coming to a rest. Despite the accident, the driver attempted to fight with the officers who were on the scene, resulting in injuries for one of the policemen. The driver then tried to get back into his vehicle and flee before police could arrest him.

Later, it was determined that the driver had a considerable arrest history. He had been booked into jail 23 times during the previous 25 years. His legal trouble included gun and drug charges, battery on a police officer and burglary.

The surviving families of fatal car crash victims in Oklahoma could benefit from contacting an attorney who focuses on personal injury litigation. Many expenses can result from such a tragic event that are unexpected, such as medical bills, funeral costs, loss of wages and other financial losses.  Attorneys in this field may be in the best position to discuss the various legal options available.
