Wrong Way Blogs

A wrong-way driving (WWD) collision is defined as an incident where a vehicle traveling in a direction opposite of the intended and legal flow of traffic on a public road, highway or access ramp and it crashes into another vehicle that is going in the proper direction. This definition does not account for accidents that are attributed to median encroachment or crossover, according to the Federal Highway Administration.

In the United States, wrong way crashes result in approximately 300 to 400 fatalities annually. This represents roughly one percent of the total number of auto accident fatalities that occur yearly. Despite the lower number of these types of accidents, they tend to be more severe due to the nature of these kinds of head-on-collisions, according to the FHA.
