The Insurance Information Institute (III) reports that 3,511 fatal head-on collisions occurred in the U.S. in a recent year, accounting for 10.2% of all fatal traffic crashes. When two vehicles collide head-on at high speeds, both vehicles come to a sudden stop. When this happens, drivers and passengers inside the vehicles continue moving at the original speed of impact, crashing into surfaces of the vehicle and each other, sustaining impact injuries. Penetrating injuries can occur from flying pieces of glass, plastic, or metal broken off in the crash.
Most head-on collisions are caused by negligence. They can occur when one vehicle crosses into a lane of oncoming traffic or travels in the wrong direction on a one-way road. Factors contributing to head-on crashes include:
