Fatal Head-On Collision Statistics

When a car accident occurs, the victims, their families, and the entire community are often devastated. According to the United States Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), 33,654 fatal vehicle crashes in 2018 caused 36,560 deaths.

A head-on collision occurs when two vehicles collide directly with each other while traveling in opposite directions. The consequences of these accidents can be severe, even at low speeds, and can even result in death.

In a head-on collision, the collision force is increased by the speed and weight of both involved vehicles. There is a lot of energy generated by head-on collisions. In turn, this increased energy means that injuries are more likely to be fatal in this type of crash. Head-on collisions commonly occur in a traffic light, stop sign, or blind intersections and on freeways.
