This type of accident usually happens because of driver error, meaning they are preventable. Sadly, the innocent victims of these crashes are rendered powerless: often, there’s nothing you can do when an oncoming vehicle is bearing down on you..  We wish that all involved have a speedy recovery from their injuries in this terrible accident.”
