CAUSES OF HEAD-ON COLLISIONS
Most head-on collisions can be avoided as long as drivers take precautionary measures that any reasonable motorist would take. In most cases, however, reckless or negligent conduct is the primary cause.
The following are some common ways head-on collisions occur:
Crossing over a double line into oncoming traffic
Failing to reduce speed approaching sharp curves
Swerving to avoid debris on the road or a stopped motor vehicle
Failing to observe and obey traffic signs and signals
Driving the wrong way down a one-way or undivided two-lane road
Driving while intoxicated
