Two-Vehicle Collision Statistics

Getting around downtown California involves hundreds of pedestrians and bicyclists. Drivers must pay strict attention at all times. A car crash can occur in the blink of an eye.

Car accidents are one of the leading factors of injury deaths in California. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017. There are several reasons why car accidents occur. The most common reasons are distracted driving, drunk driving, and driver over-fatigue.

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. The injuries that can be survived still can be severe, so victims of a head-on collision are also more likely to have permanent brain damage, amputations, or disabilities.
