Head-On Vehicle Collisions in Mississippi
A head-on crash, also called a front-end crash, is a type of collision wherein the front ends of two vehicles traveling in opposite directions make contact. In many instances, the cause of a head-on accident is that one of the drivers was on the wrong side of the roadway. Other frequent causes of frontal accidents vary from drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol to mechanical problems with the vehicle itself.
Although every kind of car accident is capable of producing severe injuries, and, in many instances, death, examined data shows that head-on collisions are particularly hazardous. The Institute for Highway Safety stated that, in 2017, the occupants of vehicles involved in head-on crashes had an overall fatality rate of almost 60%.
