A tragic and fiery vehicle accident occurred last Wednesday morning, at around 9:00, in Oklahoma City. Allegedly, the road crash took place when a driver was driving at a high rate of speed. While speeding, the vehicle collided with an embankment. As a result of the collision with the wall, the vehicle burst into flames. In addition, the police have confirmed that the driver was not wearing their seatbelt at the time of the accident. It is a possibility that a “medical event” is related to the accident’s occurrence.
Speeding is a factor in one out of every three fatal vehicle accidents. In addition, another common factor involved in fatal accidents is the lack of seatbelt use. Seatbelts are one of the easiest ways to prevent injury in a vehicle accident. When passengers in a vehicle wear their seatbelt, they reduce their risk of being injured in a vehicle accident by about half.
