Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions, while rare in frequency, are one of the most fatal kinds of accidents on Texas roads. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were 548 people killed in head-on crashes in 2018. Due to the nature of the accident, head-on collisions result in more deaths and more fatal injuries than your average car accident.
