Head-On collisions are among the most commonly occurring car crashes in our country each year. These car accidents are some of the worst and most dangerous car wrecks that occur. Head-on collisions often end in injury to the driver and passengers of each vehicle and sometimes even death, these accidents can be life-changing. Many head-on collisions are caused by “wrong-way drivers.” This usually happens when a vehicle crosses the center line on a two-way street or highway or turns the wrong way onto the road. This type of collision is dangerous due to the combined forces of the two vehicles colliding. During a head-on collision accident, the impact site is focused at the front of the car where the engine block can be dangerous and deadly to the driver.

What is a Head-On Collision?

A head-on collision occurs when the front end of two vehicles collide when they are traveling in opposite directions. An example of a head-on collision would be two vehicles traveling in opposite directions when for unknown reasons one of the two vehicles crosses the center line of the road and collides with the other.

Causes of Head-On Collisions:

  • Distracted Driving - If a driver is focusing on their phone or other things and isn’t paying complete attention to the road, it is easy for them to unintentionally cross the center line on a two-way street and lose control of the vehicle, resulting in a head-on collision accident.
  • Pileups - If a car accident involves a multi-car pile-up, sometimes the cars that are in the middle can be pushed into the parallel lanes and into oncoming traffic which can ultimately cause a head-on collision.
  • Drunk Driving - A very common cause of  head-on collision accidents is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These substances are known to impair a driver’s reflexes, vision, and judgment which can result in a head-on collision.
  • Poor Road Conditions - Construction, debris, potholes, and poor lighting on roadways can cause a driver to unintentionally veer into oncoming traffic which can cause a head-on collision.
