Sapulpa, OK (May 2, 2019) – According to reports, 26-year-old Morgan Skaggs was traveling north along State Highway 97 in her 2006 BMW just before 4:30 p.m. on May 1st. As she attempted to turn west onto 81st Street.
As Ms. Skaggs attempted to turn, she was struck in the passenger side by a 2016 Volvo driven by 56-year-old Debbie Brod.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports that Ms. Skaggs sustained trunk internal injuries and was transported to a hospital in Tulsa following the collision. Ms. Brod sustained leg and neck injuries and was transported to a Tulsa hospital in stable condition.
We hope both Ms. Skaggs and Ms. Brod are able to make a full recovery from their injuries. Our thoughts are with them both at this time.
Every year, over 600 people are killed in Oklahoma car accidents while thousands more are injured. In many cases, victims are injured where other drivers fail to yield the right of way.
Individuals who are harmed in motor vehicle accidents are often forced to go through extensive medical treatment, multiple surgeries, and even months of therapy to help overcome their injuries. These treatments are painful and extremely costly. To make matters even worse, victims are often forced out of work for extended periods and left unable to tend to their financial obligations.
