Semi-Truck Hit Passenger Vehicle from Behind

The March 3rd accident occurred shortly before 4:00 p.m., as the victim was driving her 2004 Pontiac GTO south on I-35 near Thackerville. According to the Oklahoma State Highway Patrol, a southbound semi-truck hit her car from behind, sending it off the roadway.

The 39-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the crash scene.

The Oklahoma 18-wheeler accident remains under investigation. Officials are apparently working to determine the condition of both drivers at the time of the crash.

Oklahoma Truck and 18-Wheeler Accidents

More than 5,800 crashes involving 18-wheelers and other large trucks occurred along Oklahoma roads and highways in 2018. According to the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office, these truck accidents killed 100 people and injured nearly 700 others.

I-35 – a major truck route through Oklahoma City — is considered one of the most dangerous highways in the nation.

Other leading contributors to Oklahoma 18-wheeler accidents included trucks traveling at unsafe speeds, driver inattention, following too closely, failure to yield, and unsafe vehicles.
