Head-on collision car accidents often have the most potential to cause wrongful death. In the United States, head-on car crashes accounted for two percent of crashes, but they accounted for over 1f percent of fatal auto accidents.
In recent San Diego car accident news, a 32-year-old South Bay man was killed when his pickup truck collided head-on with a cement truck in Escondido.
The driver, Jose A. Acosta-Alvarez, was pronounced dead at the scene. Fortunately no other injuries were reported but usually even if a head-on auto accident is not a fatal car accident, the injuries you can sustain from a head-on car crash have the potential to be serious. Injuries that can happen from a head-on car accident include:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Paralysis (i.e. paraplegia and quadriplegia)
- Severe burn injuries
The cause of the fatal head-on collision truck accident is not yet known.
