Factors Involved in Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions are caused by one vehicle drifting across center lines or lanes into oncoming traffic. Causes of this may stem from fatigue, distracted driving, drunk or drug-impaired driving, inattentiveness, or overcompensation after veering into another lane or the side of the road. These types of collisions most often occur on two-lane roads without center dividers, especially around curves or up and down hilly areas. Excessive speed, bad weather conditions, and faulty vehicles can all add to the impact. Modern vehicles with airbags can lessen the degree of injury or death. Airbags which deploy too quickly at high speeds, however, can also result in injury or even death to drivers and passengers. Speed plays a major role in these accidents.
