A gray-colored 2020 Toyota sedan collided head-on with a southbound Peterbilt semi-truck that was hauling a dump trailer.

Fatal Head-On Collision Statistics

When two vehicles collide directly with each other while traveling in opposite directions, it is a head-on collision. Even at slow speeds, these accidents can cause severe injuries and even death.

Although head-on collisions account for only 2% of all accidents, they are responsible for 10% of all fatalities on US roads. The majority of head-on crashes occur when drivers are distracted or tired, which is why they are so dangerous.

A head-on collision is likely to be one of the most fatal types of automobile accidents. The force of impact is much greater in a head-on collision than in other kinds of crashes.

Head-on collisions can result in serious injuries as well. Because these injuries are long-lasting, they often result in a lifetime of pain and suffering.

A lifetime of medical bills and lost wages for decades of work can quickly add up to millions of dollars in the case of these injuries.
