Due to the sheer forces involved, a head-on collision is generally seen as the most-violent type of motor vehicle accident. When two vehicles hit one another while traveling in opposite directions, the results are often catastrophic or fatal.

Statistically speaking, head-on collisions only account for two percent of all accidents, yet they account for 18 percent of all fatal accidents that occur in places other than intersections. While some head-on collisions occur when a vehicle tries to pass a slower moving vehicle, the majority occur when a vehicle drifts into the opposite lane of traffic due to a distraction, drowsiness, or drunk driving.

Types of Injuries Caused by Head On Collisions

While many of these types of crashes result in wrongful death, there are some personal injuries that are more-common than others in head-on collisions, such as:

  • Whiplash & other neck injuries
  • Injuries to the abdomen, including injuries to the liver, spleen, kidneys, and diaphragm
  • Injuries to the spinal cord
  • Head injuries
  • Injuries to the chest
  • Injuries to the feet and legs

Other possible injuries include a torn ACL ligament, fractured bones, injuries to the feet and ankles, crushed legs, nerve damage, and much more.

Primary Causes of Head-On Collisions

While a head-on crash can occur for many reasons, the eight primary causes of these types of accidents include:

  1. Distracted driving
  2. Driving while drowsy
  3. Failure to adjust behavior to accommodate poor weather or reduction in visibility
  4. Failure to use a safe technique when passing another vehicle
  5. Failure to obey traffic signals and signs
  6. Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs
