Head-On Crashes in Dallas
Head-on collisions are probably the most dangerous kind of crash there is.
This because there is increased force due to the speed of both drivers who collide and hit each other head-on.
10 percent of all fatal crashes are due to head-on collisions, while only making up 2 percent of total traffic accidents.
Victims can sustain severe damages that may disrupt their life, possibly permanently, after being involved in a head-on crash.
