A head-on collision can be deadly.
Causes of head-on collisions
A head-on collision can occur due to the following situations:
- Drunk driver: An alcohol or drug-impaired driver may swerve into oncoming traffic or drive the wrong way on a street or freeway, causing a deadly impact.
- Distracted driver: A driver who is busy texting, eating, daydreaming, or talking on the phone may drift into an oncoming lane, colliding with an innocent driver.
- Dangerous passing: Aggressive drivers may take risks when there’s not enough room to pass a vehicle safely, which can cause them to hit an oncoming car.
- Wrong-way driving: A driver who is new to the area or who makes a serious error could drive the wrong way on a one-way street, freeway ramp, or other roadway.
