Head-On Crashes in Texas
Studies reveal that when drivers are driving more than 80 miles per hour in the wrong direction and collide head-on with another vehicle, the force of impact quadruples, reducing the chance of survival for everyone involved. Head-on collisions are deemed the most dangerous type of accident sense it causes the most damage. When they do occur, it’s often on rural roads late into the night while drivers are either drunk or fatigued.
