As a result, the northbound vehicle collided with the pickup truck. There were two people in the truck and at least four individuals in the other car, including three children.
The injured individuals were reported as being the 51-year-old driver and 19-year-old passenger in the pickup as well as the 35-year-old driver and three young children in the car. The occupants of the truck and the car were take to two different hospitals. Authorities suspect that foggy weather conditions and intoxication on the part of the pickup driver were factors in the incident.
The details and outcomes of this incident could result in civil claims being filed against the driver considered at fault. If the individuals in the car and passenger in the truck were seriously injured, filing personal injury claims against the intoxicated truck driver may allow them to seek compensation for damages. Other individuals injured in similar Oklahoma car accidents may also wish to find out information if they want to take such action.
