Head-On Collisions in Texas
Recent studies show that 13 percent of all fatal collisions in rural areas are head-on collisions. One of the most common injuries sustained in this type of collision is a neck injury. The impact of the collision whips the body forward and brings it to a halt, which could lead to serious neck injuries or sudden fatalities.
