Fatal car crashes often take place on the large and congested highways of California. Many people are killed every year on California roadways because of reckless drivers and speeding drivers. In a wrong-way collision, the collision force is increased by the speed and weight of both involved vehicles. There is a lot of energy generated by wrong-way collisions.

In turn, this increased energy means that injuries are more likely to be fatal in this type of crash. Wrong-way collisions often lead to serious injuries, which can lead to permanent disability or even death. Wrong-way collisions are 27 times more deadly compared to other types of collisions.

In the United States, around 355 people are killed every year as a result of wrong-way drivers.
