Head-On Collisions Are Among the Most Serious Car Accident Types
The force of impact is amplified in a head-on collision, and as a result the occupants of the vehicles often suffer more serious injuries. Injuries in head-on collisions range from minor injuries like bruising to significant, to life-altering injuries and even death.
According to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) fatality statistics, 56 percent of car accident deaths in 2018 occurred in frontal impact accidents.
The range of possible injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Other neck and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries and lasting brain damage
- Head and facial injuries
- Broken/fractured bones
- Internal injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Injuries to extremities
- Burns and other scarring injuries
These accidents are almost always preventable if drivers follow all traffic laws and best practices, ensuring they are able to focus on the road and drive carefully. Some reasons why these accidents occur include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving while fatigued or falling asleep at the wheel
- Speeding and other reckless driving behaviors
- Fog, rain, snow, or other low visibility conditions
- Passing through an area without clear sightlines for oncoming traffic
- Drunk driving or other impaired driving
