Head-on collisions often cause death because both cars hit with extreme opposing force. These accidents are often due to miscalculating the speed and distance of the oncoming car or veering into an oncoming lane due to speeding, reckless driving, distractions, or drunk driving.
Witnesses told police the driver of a white Yukon had been weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed prior to a head-on crash that killed a 7-year-old boy and a 25-year-old woman.
The crash occurred when a white SUV drifted into the lane of a Mazda, striking it and forcing the Mazda into a spin before it was struck by an oncoming Dodge Durango. Police said neither driver had a chance to avoid the impact.
