Head-on car crashes can be a very serious type of motor vehicle accident. Such auto accidentscan cause the individuals in the vehicles involved to sustain impactful injuries. Because head-on motor vehicle collisions can be so harmful, it is very important for motor vehicle drivers to do everything they reasonably can to prevent such accidents. This includes obeying all applicable traffic laws and avoiding engaging in reckless conduct (such as wrong-way driving or drunk driving) when out on the roads. One hopes that motorists will do what they can to help keep Oregon’s roads safe. Recently, a head-on car accident occurred in Portland which resulted in two individuals getting hurt. The accident happened last Sunday. Early that morning, a man was driving a Ford west along Interstate 84. Reportedly, the man’s Ford was then hit head-on by a Nissan that was going the wrong way. The Nissan was being driven by a 29-year-old woman. Authorities cited the 29-year-old woman with reckless driving and DUII in connection to this head-on motor vehicle collision. It has been reported that the woman’s blood alcohol level tested significantly above Oregon’s legal limit. Both the 29-year-old woman and the driver of the Ford suffered injuries in this motor vehicle accident. The two were taken to a hospital after the crash occurred. According to the article on KATU’s website which reported this story, the injuries the two individuals suffered are non-life-threatening. The article did not contain any other details regarding the nature or severity of these injuries. Source: KATU, “Wrong-way driver hits another car head on,” June 3, 2012
