Head-On Crashes in Oklahoma City
Head-on collisions are probably the most dangerous kind of crash imaginable.
Due to the increased force caused by the speed of both vehicles, these collisions account for 10% of all fatal crashes. However, they only make up 2% of combined auto accidents. Victims can sustain severe damages that may disrupt their life, possibly permanently, after being involved in a head-on crash.
