Head-on collisions are the most deadly type of crash due to speed of both vehicles at the time of impact. The sudden change in velocity which occurs upon impact causes serious damages and injuries. When a head-on semi-truck accident occurs, the weight of the semi can be up to 80,000 pounds and the weight of a common passenger car can be 4,000 pounds or less. Obviously, the semi-truck has a better chance of coming out unharmed.
