Oklahoma City Truck Accident Along I-35 Leaves One Dead

by Jonathan

A 54-year-old truck driver was killed after being involved in an accident with another tractor-trailer and a car on I-35 in Oklahoma City last Friday. According to News Channel 4, the accident occurred in the northbound lanes of the highway, near the on ramp from NE 122nd Street.

Spokeswoman for the Oklahoma highway patrol, Trooper Betsy Randolph, said that a tractor-trailer was attempting to come onto the highway when the driver lost control of the vehicle. The driver who was hit and killed was in the northbound lanes of the highway and tried to avoid colliding with the out-of-control truck, but couldn’t. Debris from the collision flew back on the highway, causing another car to wreck as well.

Accidents involving commercial tractor-trailers can be very complicated due to the numerous laws that regulate the trucking industry. Drivers have strict limits on every aspect of how they do their job, and failure to maintain standards could be grounds for a case of fault if involved in an accident similar to the one described above.

That is why the Oklahoma truck accident attorneys with J. Colbert Injury Lawyers encourage anyone who has been involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer to contact a lawyer immediately. They will be able to help you better understand your rights and what information should be examined to ensure the truck driver was in full compliance with the law.
