The most common type of car accident is a rear-end collision, where the front of a trailing vehicle strikes the rear of the vehicle ahead. Typically, the striking vehicle was following too closely, not paying attention, or driving too fast for conditions. While rear-end crashes are typically minor, resulting in just vehicle damage, there are instances where injuries can occur.
