Head-On Collision In Lexington Injures At Least Six People
On June 9, 2018, six people were sent to the hospital due to a head-on collision on Nicholasville Road. Thankfully, everyone involved in this crash is expected to survive their injuries.
According to Lex 18, this crash happened early on Saturday just a few miles south of Man o’ War Boulevard. Allegedly, one car driver in the northbound lanes swerved across the median line and hit a southbound van head-on.
In total, two people were in the car and four (three of whom were children) were in the van. Emergency crews rushed everyone involved in this crash to a local hospital to get their injuries checked.
Police are still investigating the cause of this accident.
The Serious Risks Of Head-On Collisions
Roughly 2 percent of all car crashes are head-on collisions. Believe it or not, this small percentage of accidents accounts for at least 30 percent of all traffic fatalities. If you’re one of the lucky ones to survive a head-on crash, you’ll almost certainly need medical attention.
Even if you feel like you’re traveling relatively slowly, keep in mind that the force of a head-on impact will feel like hitting a stationary object at double that speed. It’s no wonder head-on crash victims often suffer traumatic brain damage, spinal cord injuries, and severe neck issues.
Although they are relatively rare, head-on collisions are amongst the most catastrophic accidents people could get involved in.
