There are thousands of auto accidents every day across the US, and some of the most deadly are wrong-way accidents. Wrong-way accidents typically result in head-on collisions and are regularly at high speeds. These accidents often happen at night or in inclement weather when visibility is already an issue, which can also lead to slower reaction times.
The Federal Highway Administration reports that there are around 300-400 fatalities from wrong-way accidents every year. While this number represents a small percentage of all yearly traffic deaths in the US, the nature of these accidents makes them especially severe.
First and foremost, it’s important to collect contact and insurance information of the other drivers involved and to ensure the safety and health of yourself and others involved in the accident.
