Oklahoma is no stranger to natural disasters. However, human error can be just as deadly as a tornado. In 2002, a deadly transportation accident claimed the lives of over a dozen people in Webbers Falls.

Over 20,000 cars were diverted for two months while the bridge was rebuilt. Today, an onsite memorial marks the tragic accident.
