Head-on collisions can often result in extensive injuries and, in the worst cases, death.

In this accident, the danger was heightened even further, given that one driver was traveling the wrong way at a high rate of speed. Reportedly, the posted speeds in that stretch of roadway is up to 65 mph. Head-on crashes already carry a high fatality rate compared to other crash types, but factoring in the wrong way only raises the potential for damages and death. In this case, both drivers died.
