While head-on collisions are rarer than most other traffic accidents, they are probably the most dangerous kinds of crashes. A head-on collision happens when two vehicles driving in opposite directions crash into each other. When vehicles are in a head-on collision, both drivers typically sustain an increased force when compared to other accidents. This can lead to catastrophic damages and high risk of severe injury or death.
