A head-on collision is when two vehicles collide with each other, and these types of accidents make up over two percent of all auto accidents in the US. It is true that in comparison to other accidents there are only less head-on collisions than other US auto crashes, but according to federal statistics head-on collisions cause a higher fatality rate than other types of accidents. So what is the cause of reoccurring head-on collisions?
By crossing the centerline or median of an oncoming vehicle path two vehicles can create head-on collisions. When any vehicle uses the wrong way of a road then head-on collisions may also occur. A number of head-on collisions result from driver negligence. According to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System’s statistics, a number of drivers fall asleep at the wheel cause head-on collisions. For example, in some instances a driver falls asleep at the wheel and the vehicle is traveling at a fast speed and a head-on collision results after the road curves. Additionally, head-on collisions are often related to driving under the influence.
