Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, thousands of people in Missouri are left with significant injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents. Many victims are left with severe and life-threatening injuries that require medical care. Unfortunately, there are a variety of motor vehicle accident types that take place on our state’s roadways every year.
Head-on collisions are one of the most dangerous types of auto collisions that can occur on the road. They are often caused by driver errors. However, there are other factors that can contribute to this type of crash as well.
One of the most common causes of head-on collisions is distracted driving. When drivers are not paying attention to the road ahead, they are more likely to drift into oncoming traffic or fail to see a vehicle stopped nearby in time to avoid a collision.
Another leading factor in head-on collisions is speeding. When drivers are going too fast, they may not be able to stop in time or swerve out of the way of oncoming traffic. This can lead to a devastating collision.
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is also a major cause of head-on collisions. Impaired drivers have slower reaction times and are less able to make good decisions behind the wheel. This increases the chances of causing a head-on crash.
Finally, poor road conditions are another common cause of head-on crashes in our state. If the roads are icy or full of potholes, it can be difficult for drivers to maintain control of their vehicles.
