Head-on collisions are car accidents that occur when two vehicles traveling in opposite directions collide. In most occasions, head-on car accidents are caused by one of the drivers traveling in the wrong direction or trying to pass traffic on a busy freeway. These types of vehicle accidents can be particularly severe due to the high speeds at which many vehicles travel on California roads.
