Three Hurt in Head-On Collision in Pomona

On the morning of April 28, 2013, a car accident occurred that left three people hospitalized. The accident occurred around 10:45 PM in Pomona, California near Harrison and Bonita avenues. The collision happened when a woman was heading southbound on Town Avenue. Unfortunately, the woman lost control of her vehicle. As a result, her son tried to take control of the steering wheel, but sideswiped another vehicle before crossing the center median and heading into oncoming traffic.

The SUV that the woman and son were driving collided into another SUV. Firefighters were forced to cut open the other SUV containing a male in his late 30’s. The man was flown by helicopter to a nearby center for his injuries. The female driver was also taken to the hospital for injuries while her son only suffered minor injuries. According to officials, none of the injuries were life-threatening.

Head-On Collision and Injuries

Unfortunately, numerous incidents similar to the story told above occur every day. Head-on collisions are one of the most dangerous types of accidents as they have the strongest force of impact. If both cars are traveling at a rate of 50 mph, when the cars meet they slam at 100 mph. As a result, injuries resulting from a head-on collision can be most devastating.

Head-on collisions may sound rare, but they occur quite commonly. Many head-on collisions take place when an impaired driver is operating their vehicle under the influence of alcohol. As a result, many drunk drivers will enter the freeway through the exit ramp and head towards oncoming traffic. Often times, it is too late and the drunk driver slams into an unsuspecting driver causing severe injury. Other times, head-on collisions can occur due to a brief momentary loss of control. Just a split second can send the driver and nearby motorists into harm’s way.
