Head-On Collisions In Kentucky
Kentucky State Police estimate that about 2 percent of all car accidents in the Bluegrass State are head-on collisions. Sadly, about 30 percent of these crashes result in at least one fatality. Without a doubt, head-on collisions are one of the most lethal accidents drivers could get involved in.
With the increased prevalence of mobile devices, safety experts expect the number of head-on collision victims to go up in the ensuing years. Most often head-on collisions occur at intersections and they are usually caused by one of the three major contributors to all car crashes: distracted driving, DUI, or fatigue.
Even if you’re fortunate enough to survive a head-on collision, you’ll almost certainly need serious medical attention. It’s not uncommon for people in head-on collisions to suffer traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, and/or broken bones. Avoid doing these things after a car accident.
