Head-On Collisions are Usually Caused by Negligent Drivers

Head-on collisions or crashes are also known as “lane departure crashes,” as one car usually goes out of its lane and hits an unsuspecting car. They can have many different causes. Head-on collisions are almost always caused by the negligence of another driver that causes him to leave a marked lane and making front-end contact with your vehicle.

Drivers may be distracted by a ringing cell phone, another mobile device, by texting, programming a GPS device, by being tired and dozing off, or by being hypnotized by the road due to sleepiness, medication or alcohol.

Sometimes drivers may be speeding when they lose control. Some drivers simply drive recklessly or perform dangerous driving maneuvers like drifting or racing with other drivers, causing them to lose control of the vehicle.
