Head-on accidents are when two cars facing opposite directions collide with each other, often at high speeds. These have the highest rates of injuries and fatalities.
Rear-end accidents occur when one vehicle strikes another vehicle from behind. These are not as fatal as head-on collisions, but still have a high injury rate.
There are two types of side-impact accidents: “t-bone collisions” and “side-swipe collisions.” T-bone collisions have extremely high injury and fatality rates due to reduced protection in the sides of cars. Side-swipe collisions are usually less dangerous, as they have lower damage levels, but can cause further loss of control by one or both cars involved.
Rollover accidents are when one car rolls off of its wheels onto its side or roof. These are rarer than other types of accidents, but may occur more frequently in vehicles with a higher center of gravity, like a bus or an SUV.
Single-car accidents occur when one driver loses control or collides with something that is not another vehicle. These can occur due to bad road conditions, reckless driving, a lack of visibility, or many other factors.
