Head-on collision auto accidents can be among the worst possible vehicle accidents for injuries and fatalities. This type of accident is so much more dangerous because the speed of the vehicles that hit each other is magnified when they are travelling in opposite directions, thereby compounding each other’s speed. Often times, these accidents occur because of one driver driving the wrong way – either down a one way street or driving on the wrong side. While these types of scenarios can make for adrenaline pumping sequences in highly-choreographed action movies, in real life they often end in terrible tragedy. Such was the case with a recent wrong-way crash in Las Vegas that critically injured four people and killed three others.
