Head-on collisions in Hollywood, Homestead, and other Florida communities occur when a car or truck veers away from their own lane and heads towards oncoming traffic, crashing with a car headed in the opposite direction. These accidents can also sometimes be wrong-way collisions.
Head-on accidents are among the most dangerous, due in part to the force exerted. Two vehicles headed towards each other at top speed can cause catastrophic damage. Often, these traffic collisions occur because someone is tired, distracted, or driving under the influence and they turn the wrong way or drift into an oncoming lane. Poor street signage can also lead to these collisions. In some cases, these collisions can also result from bad passing techniques. If a driver is trying to pass on a two-lane road and fails to check oncoming traffic, they may crash into a car heading in the opposite direction.
