Fatal Head-On Crashes in Seattle Washington
The increased force of impact of a head-on collision makes these types of accidents some of the most lethal. When two vehicles collide head-on, there is a nearly 58% chance of fatality. Head-on crashes make up an estimated 2% of reported vehicle collisions but nearly 10% of fatal collisions each year. These types of accidents are fairly rare but can end in fatal injuries, even at low speeds.
