Fatal Head-On Collisions in Mississippi
There is a significant risk of death in the event of a head-on collision. These are some of the most deadly car accidents that can occur on the road. Despite accounting for only 2% of all reported car accidents, head-on collisions have a death rate of up to 58% and account for more than 10% of all fatalities on the road each year. The majority of head-on collisions are caused by distracted or inattentive drivers who stray into opposing lanes of traffic.
