Here Are a Few Examples of the Diverse Types of Auto Collisions  

Multi-Vehicle Collisions  

This type of collision often involves many different vehicles.   

What is more, this type of collision primarily occurs on a freeway.   

This type of collision will often yield many fatalities.   

Furthermore, with so many vehicles tightly enclosed together, it can be difficult for rescuers to help.   

Additionally, drivers are often hit from the side in these types of collisions.  

Single Car Collisions  

A single car collision involves only 1 car.   

Still, while the vehicle may crash into a pole, tree, or building, innocent people can be at risk of getting hurt.  

This type of collision can lead to property damages.   

Also, there is a good risk of potentially life-threatening injuries.  

Rear-End Collisions  

A rear-end collision happens when a vehicle crashes into another vehicle that is in front of it.   

Subsequently, the collision may be caused due to sudden deceleration of the vehicle in front of you.  

Additionally, the vehicle in the back accelerating faster than the vehicle in front of it is another example.   

A common injury related to rear end collisions, is whiplash.   

As a result, the driver of the vehicle that rear ends the other vehicle is typically held responsible for the collision.   

However, there are exceptions.  

Sideswipe Collisions  

These types of accidents happen when two parallel cars contact each other.   

Also, the amount of damage can depend on the speed and direction of the vehicles.   

Although, the damage may be minimal, this type of accident can cause one of the drivers to lose control of their vehicles.  

Unfortunately, people can get injured from this type of collision as well.  

Head-On Collisions  

A Head-on collision is when two vehicles hit each other with their front ends.   

Also, hood to hood is one of the most intense types of auto collisions.   

Additionally, the result is quite often deadly for at least one of the drivers.  

Side Impact Collisions  

A side impact collision happens when the front of a vehicle smashes into the side of another vehicle.   

These types of collisions have the potential to have fatal outcomes.  

Furthermore, a common term for this type of collision is called a “T-bone.”  

Due to, the shape of the vehicles forming a letter T.
