Three people have been severely injured as a result of a head on collision. Head on collisions are rare, but devastating. They make up a disproportionately high percentage of fatality accidents. Roughly 2% of all accidents are “head-on collisions”, but they account for nearly 10% of the fatality accidents. There are several common causes of head-on collisions:
- Going the wrong way on the road;
- Crossing the center line and crashing into an oncoming vehicle;
- Passing incorrectly on a 2 lane road;
- Falling asleep behind the wheel and drifting into the oncoming traffic;
- Speeding around a curve;
- Not seeing, reading or following road signs properly;
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol; and
- Driving distractions such as texting and cell phone use, changing the radio station, arguing, etc…
It is not clear from the report who was at-fault in the accident, however, no accident is ever truly an “accident”. Someone here was negligent and the victims of that negligence will have claims against the at-fault party for their injuries for negligence, negligence per se and possibly even gross negligence.
