A woman was recently killed when the car she was driving drifted into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a pickup truck that was hauling a utility trailer, the accident occurring on Peoria Avenue in Tulsa. This wreck comes only days after a similar collision at the Keystone Dam, outside Tulsa, which also claimed one life. These are the types of accidents that may require legal action for the purpose of compensating the victims and their families. The person most qualified to handle such litigation is a Tulsa personal injury lawyer.
