Sad news came out of Tulsa this morning when a thirty (30) year-old Tulsa woman was killed in an automobile accident that occurred on I-244 in Tulsa according to newsok.com. According the story, the woman was a passenger in a vehicle that rear-ended another vehicle.
This is a sad story of a young life lost. Many Oklahomans do not realize that a passenger in a car driven by a negligent motorist can make a claim against that motorist and their insurance for negligence. In other words, because you were riding with someone who made a bad decision driving, you are not responsible and have a claim against the negligent driver the same as if you were the person he or she hit.
