Fatal Head-On Car Accidents in Texas
Sadly, hundreds of fatalities result from head-on collisions in Texas every year. The leading cause of head-on collisions is often drunk driving, especially late at night when it’s harder for drivers to see which direction they’re driving in. When roads are darker with less cars, drunk drivers are more prone to end up in the wrong direction and accidentally strike oncoming drivers.
