Head-On Collisions in Texas
Thousands of head-on collisions occur annually throughout Texas, especially when road conditions are not optimal. There are times where hazardous roads cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles and slide into opposite lanes where they end up crashing head-on into other vehicles. Head-on collisions are some of the most dangerous types of accidents to be involved in, therefore fatalities often occur.
