When the front end of an automobile crashes into the front end of another automobile, this incident is called a head-on collision. These types of crashes account for roughly 2% of all accidents. About 10% of head-on collisions result in fatalities. Most often, head-on crashes cause severe and sometimes life-threatening injuries.
The majority of head-on crashes involve driver negligence by one or more operators of motor vehicles. Head-on crashes typically occur when one driver does not remain in their own lane and veers into the opposite side of traffic, resulting in a collision. Head-on collisions also occur when a driver goes the wrong way. For example, a head-on collision may occur when a driver enters a roadway on an off ramp instead of the on-ramp entrance, or when a driver illegally turns onto a one-way road. Unfortunately, head-on collisions cause serious and often deadly accidents.
