Head-on collisions only account for about 2% of all automotive accidents. These accidents are so dangerous that they account for 10% of all auto accident fatalities. Typically, head-on collisions are caused by the negligence of one or more drivers. If a driver fails to maintain their lane and veers into oncoming traffic, this can cause a head-on collision. Another cause of many head-on collisions is wrong-way driving. Head-on collisions are typically caused by an intoxicated driver or a driver who is unfamiliar with an area driving at night and entering the expressway via an off-ramp instead of an on-ramp.
