1 dies in drowsy driving accident in Oklahoma

Rear-end collisions happen for many reasons, one of which is falling asleep behind the wheel. When you drive at night, you need to take the time to get enough rest. If you begin to get tired, then you need to pull over and stop instead of putting yourself or others in danger. If you don't, you could cause a collision like this one.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported a two-vehicle accident in which one person was killed over the weekend. According to their report, a 49-year-old man riding a motorcycle was struck and killed in the collision.

It was around 1:00 a.m., when the crash took place on U.S. 377. At that time, a 43-year-old woman driving a 1993 Nissan fell asleep while driving. Her vehicle continued onward until it struck the rear of the motorcycle.

The woman was not hurt in the crash, but the motorcyclist had to be MediFlighted to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. He suffered head injuries during the crash and did not survive. He was pronounced deceased at around 9:15 a.m., the following morning.

Motorcycle crashes are usually among the worst, and in rear-end collisions, that remains true. If you are hurt or lose a loved one in a collision like this one, you deserve to make sure the other party is held responsible for the pain and suffering you have gone through as a result of their negligence or poor planning. No one deserves to suffer as a result of another driver's inability to know when they need to pull over and rest.
