The communities of Bethany, Oklahoma, and Gainesville, Texas are mourning today after a deadly tractor-trailer accident occurred late Friday night in Davis, Oklahoma. A truck driving northbound on Interstate 35 veered across the median and crashed into a bus carrying 15 students from the North Central Texas College women’s softball team.
Three of the softball players died at the scene and a fourth died at a hospital near Sulpher, Oklahoma.
Several other players, including the coach driving the bus, were treated at the scene for minor injuries suffered.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Captain Ronnie Hampton claimed the truck driver was distracted by something in the cab but declined to mention what the distraction was. The truck driver escaped injuries and currently, there are no charges pending against him.
The Highway Patrol will turn over the results of its investigation to the local district attorney, who will decide whether to pursue criminal charges.
Accidents caused by distracted driving are avoidable if drivers would pay attention while driving. It is imperative that all the rules of the road are followed, especially when handling a big rig.

My orthopedic doctor recommended Graves McLain Injury Lawyers, PLLC, to me following the need for revision hip surgery due to a hip from Stryker that was putting poison into my system. The doctor took care of the hip, and Graves McLain Injury Lawyers, PLLC, took care of the legal case. They were very thorough, professional, courteous, and always ready to answer the questions I had throughout the length of the case. In a word, the entire office is fantastic.

If I ever have a claim in the future, they will be the first group to whom I reach out.
