As discussed on the “DuPage County Accidents Involving ‘Head-On Collisions’” page, there are many reasons why this type of frontal collision typically results in serious, if not life-threatening, accident injuries. Such collisions can be very hard to avoid as there can be very little warning that a vehicle is about to veer into opposing lanes.
