Excessive speed can be a contributing factor in many crashes that take place on the roadways. When speed is a cause, auto accidents involving only one vehicle could easily prove deadly. In such cases, the families of passengers killed may wish to seek justice for their losses and pursue compensation for damages resulting from the fatal events.
One family may be taking such action after a recent fatal crash in Oklahoma. Reports stated that only one vehicle was involved in the incident, and there were two individuals inside at the time of the crash. The vehicle was apparently traveling at a high rate of speed when it collided with a concrete barrier. As a result, both occupants were ejected from the car. The incident happened around 2 a.m.
The 29-year-old man and 24-year-old man both suffered fatal injuries as a result of the incident and were declared dead at the accident site. At the time of the report, authorities were not certain which individual may have been driving. They are continuing to investigate and additional information may be available at a later time.
Once it is determine who was driving, the family of the passenger may wish to file a legal claim against the estate of the driver. A wrongful death claim could allow them — and other families similarly affected by fatal auto accidents — to pursue restitution for the loss of their loved one as well as other emotional and financial struggles that may result. Information on taking such legal action in Oklahoma could help them determine whether it could be right for their circumstances.
