Owasso, OK — Last Thursday, there was a serious car accident reported in Owasso that resulted in a 17-year old girl suffering critical injuries. Police said that Brittian Harrison, 29, was arrested for allegedly being under the influence of alcohol after he caused a car accident on Highway 169.

This all happened last Thursday (January 29, 2015) at about 10:30 p.m. at night. Harrison had been driving along Highway 169 that night near 76th Street when he suddenly swerved into the lane next to his and slammed on his brakes, cutting off the car behind him.

That driver (the 17-year old girl) wasn’t able to react in time and crashed into lost control of her car, swerving off the road and flipping over at least 5 times. The teen was immediately transported to a nearby hospital with critical injuries.

After the accident, a witness followed Harrison’s car because he fled the scene. Police were eventually able to apprehend and arrest him, noting that he smelled and sounded like he was under the influence. He apparently admitted to police that he had been drinking “3 to 4 bottles of beer” at a local bowling alley. He also had an 8-year old boy in his vehicle at the time.

Right now, the charges against him are pending.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
