Drivers Injured in Crash on Evans Drive in Clayton County, Georgia (GA)

September 14, 2020

REX, GA- According to, two motorists were injured in a crash that occurred on Highway 42 in Rex, Georgia. The Clayton County Police Department writes that the collision involved two cars that collided head-on. The motorists were both rushed to a local hospital.*

Further details are not yet available regarding the cause of the crash or the identities of those involved. 

One study conducted in Georgia found that head-on collisions are the deadliest type of crashes. While more vehicle occupants are killed in angle crashes, angle crashes are also more common than are head-on impacts. Out of 247,800 angle collisions analyzed, 369 people died. Out of 20,680 head-on collisions, 161 people were killed. The death rate for head-on impacts was 2.75 percent. Less than one percent of those involved in angle crashes died as a result of their injuries. 

Fortunately, most crashes are not head-on. Only two percent of all collisions involve a head-on impact. Still, these incidents lead to ten percent of all crash-related fatalities because when a head-on impact does happen, it will often cause fatal injuries. 

Road designers take steps to prevent these collisions from occurring, including installing barriers between opposite traveling lanes of traffic. Barriers, which may be constructed from concrete, cables, or other materials, are a good way to stop cars from drifting into other oncoming vehicles. In some cases, drivers will strike the barriers themselves, which can cause serious crashes as well. However, given the high risk of injury and death that is associated with head-on collisions, a crash with a barrier is often going to be less devastating. 

In some instances, even such barriers do not prevent head-on collisions. This is the case when drivers enter a divided road traveling in the wrong direction.
