Head-On Vehicle Accidents in Texas
In 2018, almost 600 people lost their lives in head-on collisions in Texas. Most head-on collisions occur in rural areas where the roads are poorly lit, making it harder for drivers to discern which lane is the correct one. Head-on collisions are also common amongst drunk or fatigued drivers, especially late at night.
