by Jonathan

A bridge was temporarily closed overnight after an Oklahoma boat accident when seven barges crashed in the U.S. 62 bridge Monday, Tulsa World reported.

The barges broke loose from the port and floated down the Arkansas River where they struck the bridge at about 8:30 p.m., causing the Oklahoma boat accident.

Authorities have not concluded how the barges broke loose from the port and caused the Oklahoma boat accident.

There were no Oklahoma boat accident injuries Monday, unlike the Oklahoma boat accident in 2002 when a barge crashed into a pier off the Interstate 40 bridge, killing 14 people.

The bridge was reopened Tuesday at 5:30 a.m., after the structure had been tested following the Oklahoma boat accident.

Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby pulls items due to defective product injury risks

by Jonathan

KSWO reported that the Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby has ordered that items be pulled from its store shelves due to risk of defective product injuries.

A study determined that plastic Easter toys such as eggs, spinning tops, and chick-themed sipper cups, contained toxic levels of lead in the paint which could cause Oklahoma defective product injuries.

Toxic levels of lead can cause defective product injuries such as severe nerve damage, especially in children.

The Oklahoma City-based store is conducting further tests on their products and cooperating with the Consumer Product Safety Commission to begin a recall in an attempt to prevent national and Oklahoma City defective product injuries.

Lead toxicity could potentially cause Oklahoma City defective product injuries.
