Head-On Car Collision Involving Seven Vehicles Causes Head Injury

Comments (0)
A head-on collision from a driver going the wrong way in Hickory, North Carolina has caused a total of seven vehicles to crash in the process. One of the victims was rushed to the hospital after suffering a head injury. Two others were hospitalized with injuries not yet determined as of this writing. 

According to Hickory Police, a driver was headed the wrong way down Highway 321, causing this mishap in the first place. By the time that police officers arrived at the scene, it became apparent that the driver who had been driving the wrong way had become pinned beneath a car.  

Emergency responders freed the man from the twisted metal and rushed him to the hospital. Additional victims had incurred injuries yet to be known, while some others were treated on the scene as their injuries were not as severe.  

Authorities investigating the
multi-vehicle crash believe the same driver that caused the accident was involved in at least two other hit and run crashes all in the same day. They are in the process of determining if alcohol, drugs or a medical condition played a part in this mayhem. 

A head-on collision happens for only one reason: Someone was seriously negligent, driving directly at traffic. It nearly always means a catastrophic injury or fatal accident. It is my wish that you never get a phone call from authorities telling you devastating news that a loved one has been involved in a head-on collision. Always drive defensively and keep your distance from aggressive drivers that may cause you harm.
