Head-on collisions are the most dangerous type of car accident and have
the highest fatality rate across the nation. These occur when two cars
traveling opposite directions run into each other going forward. Usually
these involve the most force being transferred, which means they also
have the highest rate of serious injuries.
Not quite as fatal as head-on collisions, but still extremely dangerous
when it comes to injuries, rear-end collisions are when one vehicle collides
with the back of another. These are frequently caused by front vehicle
suddenly slowing down or stopping or the car behind accelerating too quickly.
These are usually far more dangerous to the vehicle being impacted.
These accidents are also known as “t-bone collisions” and occur
when the front of one vehicle or a stationary object strikes the side
of another vehicle. These carry an extremely high rate of injury and fatality
for occupants of the struck vehicle due to the decreased amount of metal
and safety features on the sides of vehicles.
These occur when a vehicle flips onto its side or roof, usually caused
by a high-speed turn. More often than not these are self-caused accidents,
though could occur as a result of a side-impact collision. These also
occur far more frequently in vehicles with a higher center of gravity,
such as large trucks and SUVs.
Single-car accidents are accidents where only one vehicle is involved,
such as a car striking a pole, fire hydrant, wall, or other obstacle.
These can be caused by a wide variety of factors, such as unsafe road
conditions, reckless driving, lack of visibility, and many other factors.
The severity of injuries from these accidents can vary widely depending
on things such as speed, impact location, and more.
