Head-on collisions oftentimes result in serious injuries or fatalities for any parties involved. These types of accidents may occur due to distracted driving, speeding, intoxicated driving, or drivers who become lost and drive the wrong way. When one of the vehicles is a large bus, the weight and size of the bus contribute to the severity of the accident.
