Head-on collisions often result in fatalities. A head-on crash between two vehicles traveling at 50 mph is equivalent to a moving vehicle running into a stationary object at 100 mph. These types of accidents usually occur due to lane or road departure by one of the involved vehicles. Head-on crashes can also result from wrong-way entry of a vehicle onto an off-ramp or wrong side of the road, or as is prevalent in New Orleans, a vehicle going the wrong way on a one-way street.
These types of accidents can be life changing or even deadly.
Common injuries from head-on collisions are:
- Head Trauma
- Brain Injury
- Neck & Back Injury
- Spinal Cord Damage
- Internal Organ Damage
- Cuts & Bruises
