Head On Collision
Head-on collisions are less common but lethal, accounting for over 10% of all fatal vehicle accidents. Despite the fact that they account for just 2% of all traffic incidents in the United States, according to the NHTSA. Serious injury and death are common outcomes when two vehicles crash while traveling in opposite directions.
Drunk driving, driving in the wrong lane (or, in some cases, reckless passing), distracted driving, or less-than-ideal driving conditions, such as wet roads that can cause hydroplaning, cause the majority of head-on collisions. When a vehicle collides with a stationary object, a head-on collision may occur. Many head-on collisions result in death, which is an unfortunate fact.
However, in less serious cases, they may cause other types of bodily harm, such as:
- Spinal cord injuries – a high-speed head-on crash can injure your spine and even paralyze you. Spinal injury and paralysis may often be permanent.
- Traumatic brain injury can occur when your head collides with the steering wheel or another part of your car. Swelling of the brain is also a possibility. This is a very severe injury that requires medical treatment right away.
- Internal organ injury – being slammed into a part of the vehicle can result in serious injuries that are not visible. Organ rippling or tearing is a serious and potentially fatal disease.
It’s comforting to note that head-on collisions are a rare occurrence in automobile accidents. To prevent serious injury, you should still wear your seatbelt and drive safely.
