Head On Collisions
Of all the types of car wrecks, a head-on collision is the most likely to cause a fatality. Physics works against the driver and his or her passengers. If two vehicles collide head on at 50 mph, the force is roughly the same as a non-moving car being hit at 100 mph. The injuries from head-on collision accidents are often catastrophic, altering the lives of the injured and their families.
