Head-on car crashes can be among the deadliest crashes on the road. They normally occur either on two-lane highways where someone is attempting to go around a slow vehicle or when one driver is simply driving too fast and too aggressively. In any case, the results of a head-on car crash are devastating to anyone in the vehicle.
THE LAW REGARDING HEAD-ON CRASHES
State law is very clear that drivers of vehicles must maintain a safe distance between each other and they must not overtake another vehicle when the lines separating the road are a solid yellow on highways. Rather, if the driver of a car wishes to overtake another vehicle, the driver must wait until the yellow line is broken up in hash marks.
Unfortunately, not all drivers do this, and they simply choose to overtake a vehicle, which can often result in a head-on car crash. Head-on car crashes are normally the result of the following behaviors of a driver:
- Driving too fast for the conditions of the road
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while distracted, such as texting, calling, or using a cell phone
