How to Avoid a Head-on Car Collision

Meridian police reported a head-on car collision occurring on Ustick Road last Tuesday morning. Officials say a truck heading westbound crossed over the center line and struck an oncoming vehicle head-on. The driver of the truck was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation of injuries. Most likely distracted driving is to blame for this car accident. The attorneys and staff at Parke Gordon Law Firm in Boise would like to remind drivers to always be aware of what is going on around them and never drive distracted. The following are some tips to hopefully help you to avoid a head-on car collision.

How to Avoid a Head-on Car Collision

Head-on collisions often result in serious injuries and/or death. Many head-on collisions happen in rural areas such as areas outside of Boise.

If an oncoming vehicle is in your lane:

  • Slow down quickly by easing off the gas and pressing the brake.
  • Honk your horn and flash your headlights to try to get the other drivers attention.
  • Try to steer into any clear areas such as the shoulder.
  • If necessary, drive off the road. Hitting the ditch is better than hitting another vehicle head-on.
  • Steer to the right of the oncoming vehicle to avoid any other oncoming traffic.
