Oklahoma car accidents: 1 injured in Valentine's Day wreck

Police in Oklahoma are investigating a Valentine's Day wreck that left one person injured. This incident occurred in the Lawton area, and involved a semitrailer and a pickup truck. The victim of this crash, and others who have suffered injuries in similar car accidents, may be entitled to seek compensation through legal means for any damages sustained.

According to a recent news report, at approximately 2 p.m. on Feb. 14, a semitrailer was traveling on Highway 62 near Deyo Mission Road when it hit a pickup truck that was stopped on the shoulder. The force of impact caused the pickup to roll several times before it eventually came to rest in a ditch. The driver of the impacted vehicle -- a 72-year-old male -- suffered critical injuries and was flown to a medical facility in Oklahoma City for treatment. His current condition is unknown.

Little information has been released about the driver of the semi. As of the latest report, authorities are unclear as to why this individual struck the pickup truck. Police have not indicated if any criminal charges are expected in this case.

Car accidents that involve semitrailers often have serious outcomes -- such as in this case. The victim is likely to experience significant financial and psychological injuries on top of his physical ones. If it is possible to prove that truck driver negligence contributed to this wreck, the victim may pursue damages by filing legal claims in an Oklahoma civil court. If litigation proves successful, a monetary judgment for any economic and non-economic damages experienced may be awarded.
