When head-on crashes happen in Los Angeles and in surrounding areas, you may see the devastating aftermath on the evening news or on the Internet. What you will not see is the life-changing impact those devastating crashes can have on victims and families.
A head-on crash is one of the most violent car accidents. When two vehicles strike each other from opposing directions, the force of impact is horrific. While head-on crashes are relatively rare and account for only 2% of all crashes nationally, the trauma involved means they account for 18% of all fatal crashes other than those that occur at intersections.
In California, head-on collisions are all too common. There were 16,620 California drivers injured and 487 killed in head-on vehicle collisions in 2011, according to the California Highway Patrol. The force of a head-on crash is even worse when one of the vehicles is much bigger than the other.
