Two-Vehicle Collision Statistics

Car accidents in the U.S. happen almost every minute. Tens of thousands of drivers and passengers lose their lives each year due to crashes. According to the United States Department of Transportation’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), there were 33,654 fatal vehicle crashes in 2018, which caused 36,560 deaths.

A head-on accident is defined as the front end of any two vehicles hitting each other. These types of crashes happen mainly in a traffic light, stop sign, or blind intersections and on freeways.

Unfortunately, not everyone survives from a head-on collision. Although head-on collisions only represent 2 percent of accidents, they account for 10 percent of fatalities on U.S. roadways. Head-on crashes at intersections occur when drivers disregard traffic laws and signals, such as red lights, stop signs, or yield signs.
