Police are still investigating the accident and don’t know the exact cause, but suspect the deceased driver was traveling at a high rate of speed, the Sky Valley Chronicle reported.
Head-on collisions are often fatal and the victims who do survive often suffer catastrophic injuries. Although head-on collisions only account for 2 percent of traffic accidents, they are responsible for 10 percent of traffic fatalities.
In most cases, head-on collisions are the result of a driver losing control and veering into oncoming traffic. Speeding, inattention, fatigue and intoxication can easily make a driver lose control and cross over into oncoming traffic. Entering a roadway the wrong way is another leading cause of fatal or injurious head-on collisions. Sixty percent of wrong-way head-on collisions are caused by drunken drivers, according to data from the National Traffic Safety Board.
For the most part, motorists who drive into oncoming traffic are at fault for a head-on collision. There are some occasions however when a motorist is pushed into oncoming traffic by another passenger vehicle or commercial truck. For victims of head-on collisions, knowing what caused their accident and who is at fault is paramount. They must be able to identify the motorist responsible for their injuries or death of their loved one so that they can get compensation for their accident-related expenses and mental anguish.
