Deadly Head-On Accidents in Ohio
Head-on crashes are some of the most deadly types of collisions possible. According to recent reports, head-on accidents have a nearly 58% fatality rate. While only making up around 2% of reported crashes, head-on crashes are involved in nearly 10% of deadly car accidents reported annually. Even at low speeds, head-on collisions can be deadly, and they are often caused by reckless or inattentive drivers who fail to follow the rules of the road.
