An elderly woman was killed in a rural Atoka County accident on Voca Road near the town of Caney according to state police.
The woman was only identified as being 85-year-old from Lane and she was eastbound on Voca when she attempted to turn onto U.S. Route 69/75. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said she was struck by a southbound car and died at the scene.
The second driver was not identified and it is not known if they were injured.
According to the National Safety Council, the rate of traffic deaths rose 4 percent in 2012 to 1.23 per 100 million. The study attributed the increase, in part, to a mild winter and improved economic conditions.
Seeing a copy of the Oklahoma accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.

If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
