The driver of the Ford, 39-year-old Juan Francisco Burgos, was also killed at the scene.

Head-On Collision Lawyers

Head-on collisions are more severe than minor fender benders or other types of car accidents. The injuries that result from head-on collisions are often serious and require immediate medical attention. The most common head-on accident injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, whiplash, and many more. For the case above, a head-on crash led to the death of three people due to the extent of injuries suffered in the crash.
