Two Killed in Head-on Crash in Baytown

Late last night, two men were killed and a child injured when two pickup trucks collided nearly head-on on North Main in Baytown. The 3-year-old child was rushed to Hermann Hospital in critical condition. There is no word yet as to the cause of the collision, as police are still investigating.

While head-on collisions occur less frequently than other types of collisions, they are far deadlier. In 2005, only 2% of all motor vehicle collisions were head-on, but they accounted for more than 10% of all fatal collisions. 3,970 fatal head-on collisions occurred in the United States in 2005.

Fatal head-on collisions occur most frequently on rural roads, which are sometimes unmarked, allow for passing on two-lane roads, and have blind curves and high speed limits. However, last night's accident shows that the risk of head-on collisions in urban and suburban areas are also very real. Late night head-on collisions by wrong-way drivers, who are often intoxicated, have occurred with alarming frequency in the Houston area in recent years. One such collision in Houston in late June killed five family members.
