Motorcycle accident claims life of Oklahoma woman

An Oklahoma woman was recently killed in a motorcycle accident in another state. According to authorities, the 61-year old woman died of head injuries following the motorcycle accident and another motorcyclist was also seriously injured in the accident. The accident occurred when a group of motorcyclists were travelling in the left-hand lane and a semi-truck began merging from the right-hand lane and into the left-hand lane. As a result, one motorcyclist was unable to slow down in time and hit the back of a trailer another motorcyclist was hauling. One motorcycle went into a median but regained control and the other motorcycle laid down as a result.

Truck accident victims have resources available to them

Unfortunately, the driving public is sometimes placed at risk when truck drivers and trucking companies do not follow regulations that limit the number of hours a truck driver can be behind the wheel. Excessive driving, without proper breaks, can lead to difficulty concentrating and may result in truck accidents.
