Head on collisions are particularly devastating to all those involved simply due to physics. Negligence is a factor in almost all accidents in one form or another. In head on crashes the negligent party is usually very obvious since they were either traveling in the wrong lane, driving in the wrong direction, or passing in an area that they should not be passing in.
