High school football player dies from head injury

A high school football player in Oklahoma died on Sept. 19 as a result of a head injury he suffered earlier in the month. The Bartlesville Wesleyan Christian High School student reportedly sustained the head injury when he was tackled during a football game. Although the tackle appeared to be routine, the boy required surgery after the incident.

General Motors defect responsible for multiple accidents

Oklahoma drivers with vehicles manufactured by General Motors may want to find out if theirs is one that was recalled for a faulty ignition. A number of people who were convicted of charges such as vehicular homicide following accidents while driving these vehicles have now had those charges overturned with more cases expected. Reports say that General Motors knew about the ignition fault for years before issuing the recall, and a man in one case was charged even though General Motors had already released information regarding the recall.

Delayed injuries from car accidents

Oklahoma residents who have been unfortunate enough to have been involved in a car accident may not necessarily manifest all the symptoms of their injury at once. The adrenaline and confusion of the accident have the potential to mask a person's awareness of very serious wounds, and certain conditions such as whiplash injuries can take days or even weeks to reveal the true extent of the damage.
