Head-on collisions are thankfully rare events. But when these types of auto accidents do happen, the result is almost always catastrophic injury or even death. Head-on crashes can happen when a driver crosses over into oncoming traffic or goes the wrong way down a one-way street. In many of these accidents, the driver responsible for the accident is intoxicated or impaired in some way.
Whenever two cars collide in a head-on crash, those in the car are likely to suffer severe injuries, even if seat belts and airbags work as intended. The feet, legs and hips may bear the brunt of the impact, causing broken bones, dislocations, and other injuries. If a driver or passenger is thrown from the vehicle, death or severe trauma is almost always the result.
