Head On Collision
A head on collision is usually the most dangerous and frightening type of car accident that a driver will face. A wrong way driver leaves little time for other drivers to react and protect themselves from an oncoming vehicle. Typically, wrong way drivers are under the influence or suffering from a medical incident which causes them to be on the wrong side of the road. The occupants of the vehicle which was hit in this case were very fortunate to escape the collision without serious injuries. Many victims of a head on collision are not as lucky.
