A two-vehicle wreck in Elgin, Oklahoma sent at least one person to the hospital. Very few details have been released about the wreck that occurred in Southern Oklahoma last Saturday night. The crash happened at the intersection of Highway 277 and Tony Creek Road. First responders were quickly called to the scene, just before 10:00 p.m. KSWO Channel Seven News reports that there were multiple injuries associated with the crash. Initial investigations indicate that two automobiles collided, sending one car through a fence and into a storage building. One driver was pinned in a vehicle. Emergency responders rescued the pinned driver, who was immediately transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries.
Last week, we reported on two separate crashes in Lawton, one of which involved a police officer. A police cruiser vehicle was wrecked while responding to another crash. Southern Oklahoma has been in the news recently for multiple car accidents and collisions. We also covered a story about a motorcyclist that was struck outside of Fort Sill. Victims of automobile accidents may become confused or disoriented after a crash. It’s important to remain calm, and take care of yourself after an accident.
What To Do After a Car Accident
- Contact the police, if they haven’t already arrived.
- Seek medical attention.
- Contact an experienced car accident attorney.
Many times, a witness may contact law enforcement authorities before a victim has the chance. Emergency medical personnel may also be on the scene swiftly. If emergency medical responders are on the scene, victims may be evaluated and sent to local hospitals. Even minor collisions can result in painful injuries. It’s important to visit a doctor after any wreck. Ultimately, one of the most important things to do after a car wreck is to contact an experienced attorney.
