Head-on collisions are some of the most dangerous that can occur on the road. Often a result of one car drifting across the center line into oncoming traffic, the force of impact when two colliding cars are traveling in completely opposite directions can be extremely severe. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 30,000 people are killed in traffic accidents annually. A great many of these fatalities are the result of head-on collisions.
