Head-On Collision Statistics

Head-on collisions are accidents that involve extreme force. 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. Although head-on collisions only represent 2 percent of accidents, they account for 10 percent of fatalities on U.S. roadways.

Head-on collisions commonly occur in a traffic light, stop sign, or blind intersections and on freeways. Head-on crashes at intersections happen when drivers disregard traffic laws and signals, such as red lights, stop signs, or yield signs.
