Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous car accidents in San Diego and occur when two vehicles hit one another, both in the front portions of the cars. Sometimes, a head-on collision occurs when one car strikes a stationary object.

With two cars, however, it is most frequently the case that a head-on crash occurs when one vehicle accidentally crosses the center line and drives into oncoming traffic, causing a collision. According to the NHTSA, head-on collisions occur in 2% of all crashes.

When a car flips onto its side or roof, it's considered a rollover accident, which occurs as the result of:

  • a rear-impact;
  • side-impact;
  • head-on collision, or
  • if the vehicle attempts a sharp turn while driving at high speeds.  

Sport utility vehicles and trucks are the most likely to tip over. As a result, many of these vehicles have attempted to reduce certain steering wheel capabilities to prevent sharp turning at high speeds. Rollovers comprise a little more than 2% of all accidents but constitute a disproportionately higher number of deaths.

There are other types of accidents, but these are among the most common and constitute the most accidents and injuries per year in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If you have been injured in an accident, document the type of collision you have been involved in and make that information available to your San Diego car accident lawyer
