Head-On Collisions

head-on collisions should be feared because these kinds of accidents result in fatalities. Such an accident usually happens when one driver enters into oncoming traffic.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS), three-quarters of head-on collision in the late 1990s happened on countryside roads. They were also seen most often on two-lane highways that lack a structure in the median. Head-on collisions on these highways typically happened when one person is trying to pass another.

Head-on collisions may cause immediate fatalities, but they can also cause life-threatening injuries. These include head trauma, broken bones, paralysis, spine injuries, facial injuries, dental injuries. The seriousness of these injuries bring with them costly hospital bills, the inability to return to work and emotional distress.
