Fatal Head-On Collision Statistics

A head-on collision occurs when two vehicles collide directly while traveling in opposite directions. Even at low speeds, these collisions can result in serious injuries and even death. Head-on collisions are probably one of the most fatal types of car accidents. During a head-on collision, the collision force is much stronger than other types of car accidents.

The collision force in a head-on collision is increased by the speed and weight of both vehicles involved. Head-on collisions produce a significant amount of energy. As a result of the increased energy, injuries in this type of crash are more likely to be fatal. Although head-on collisions only represent 2 percent of accidents, they account for 10 percent of fatalities on U.S. roadways.
