Deadly Head-On Accidents in Ohio

Head-on crashes are involved in nearly 10% of reported traffic fatalities in the United States each year, despite only making up an estimated 2% of reported crashes nationwide. Statistics reveal that head-on crashes have a nearly 58% fatality rate. These accidents are often caused by the negligent actions of distracted drivers who veer into oncoming traffic.
