Head-on collisions can be more dangerous than other types of auto collisions. While head-on collisions only account for 2 percent of all traffic accidents, they account for 10 percent of all fatal traffic accidents in the United States. Head-on collisions are lethal because of the law of physics—the speed of both cars traveling towards one another multiplies the violence of the collision. For example, two cars colliding at 50 mph is the equivalent of a moving vehicle hitting a stationary vehicle at 100 mph. As one can imagine, the injuries can be catastrophic.
Common causes of head-on collisions:
- Drunk driving
- Winding roadways
- Fatigued driver
- Distracted driver
More than half of head-on collisions occur in daylight, and more than 80 percent occur in dry weather. Many attribute this to the fact that nice weather relaxes a driver’s guard; in bad weather, drivers tend to be more cautious and attentive.
