Head-On Collisions in Texas
In 2017, over 550 people lost their lives in head-on collisions throughout Texas. Sadly, these are the most dangerous types of collisions and often occur late in the evening when there are less cars on the highway. Drivers often cause these types of accidents when they’re under the influence of drugs or alcohol because they’re less likely to be aware of their surroundings and more prone to swerve into opposite lanes.
