Common Causes of Front-End Crashes
When two vehicles that are moving in opposite directions crash bumper to bumper, this is considered a head-on collision.It is important to note that head-on collisions can also occur when one vehicle directly hits a fixed object straight on. Typically, head-on car crashes are caused by automotive malfunctions or simple driver negligence.
The most common circumstances that result in a head-on auto accident include:
- Taking a corner at high speeds
- Making a wide turn around a blind bend
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics
- Tire blowouts
- Animals, debris or other obstacles on the road
- Altered traffic patterns or construction
- Poor weather conditions that cause low visibility
- Failure to follow road signs
- Turning into the path of on-coming traffic
- Poor passing judgment
As with most auto accidents, general driver negligence is often the underlying cause of most serious collisions. By staying alert when behind the wheel, and driving defensively at all times, can help to minimize the risk of a head on crash.
