Road Terrorists

On average 1 or two people a day die in head-on collisions in US on divided freeways, and even more counting 2 lane roads or crossing the median.

Only 3 percent of all crashes are wrong way driver. 2005, head-on crashes were only 2.0% of all crashes, yet accounted for 10.1% of U.S. fatal crashes. In Minnesota alone, an average state of 5.5M there were 466 in 2011 rising to 536 (2 per day) in 2015 including 123 fatal crashes with 155 deaths. (about 1 death every 2 days, if scaled nationally, that would be 12 every day). On some days more than 11 people die in a single day on both coasts.

Why do a very high percentage of mysterious "accidents" that look like terrorist attacks involve people crossing the center line or driving the wrong way on a freeway into an innocent or police target, usually in conjunction with DUI, drugs, distraction and / or suspended licence?

These are almost never determined to be deliberate attacks. Most reports of head-on crashes look like thinly disguised attacks with bad cover stories, and even these deliberate attacks, sometimes on police are blamed on mental illness, not a terrorist motive.

Some have been admitted to be deliberate "suicide" but rarely or never intentional murder or suicide attack. The most famous mysterious case suspected to be a deliberate assassination was General Patton where a soldier pretending to be a joyrider lay in wait to drive into Patton's car, he died of his injuries.

 study in Virginia found the fatality rate for wrong-way collisions on controlled-access highways to be 27 times that of other types of accidents. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) found a fatality rate 12 times greater A study in Michigan found that 22 percent of wrong-way collisions were fatal, compared to 0.3 percent for all highway accidents
in the same time frame

e NTSB also has investigated interstate median crossover accidents, which are often
considered in conjunction with wrong-way driving.12 As has been noted, however, the NTSB
does not include this type of event in the report because many of the countermeasures for median
crossovers differ from those that might prevent wrong-way driving. For the same reason, the
report does not consider wrong-way collisions on two-lane highways.

 substantial proportion of wrong-way drivers are impaired by alcohol (see data
in section 1.4.1

[Do they get drunk so as not suspected deliberate crash? ]
Alchohol: There were 1,566 wrong-way drivers in the multiyear FARS data set; of these, 936 wrong-way drivers (60 percent) had indications of alcohol involvement. By comparison, only 126 other drivers (6.5 percent) in the same fatal wrong-way crashes (referred to in figure 2 [see below] as “right-way drivers”) had alcohol involvement.

 9 percent of wrong-way drivers had been convicted of driving while intoxicated or impaired (DWI) within the 3 years prior to the wrong-way collision, compared to 3.2 percent for a matched control group of right-way drivers.

No license: [cover story for deliberate crash?]

19 percent of the wrong-way drivers were operating a vehicle without proper licensure, 
6 percent of the right-way drivers involved in these crashes.

USUALLY NEAR HOME
wrong-way drivers for whom residence was known lived relatively near the collision sites, at distances of 3 to 57 miles. 

USUALLY DRUNK
Six of the nine wrong-way drivers had a BAC more than twice the legal limit of 0.08. 

OFTEN HIT BUSES (desirable terrorist target)
 NTSB has conducted three major investigations of wrong-way collisions: they took place on March 7, 1968, near Baker, California; on June 9, 1970, near Dulles, Virginia; and on May 14, 1988, near Carrollton, Kentucky.33 All three collisions involved passenger vehicles that struck buses

Common causes of head-on collisions
  • does not mention deliberate terrorist attacks
  • Rural roads, neighborhood roads and other roads that lack a median meant to stop vehicles from crossing over into the opposing lane
  •  Poor construction-zone redirecting
  •  Distracted driving
  •  Failure to maintain vehicle control, failing to pass or overtake another vehicle
  •  Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or when fatigued
  •  Poor weather conditions such as ice
  •  Breaking traffic rules or ignoring traffic signs and signals

Two car crashes that killed a total of 11 people on Sunday occurred more than 2,000 miles apart, but bore one terrifying similarity — they were caused by drivers barreling the wrong way down highways.While wrong-way crashes occur relatively infrequently, accounting for only 3 percent of accidents on divided highways, the fatality rate for wrong-way collisions is roughly 27 times more than other types of accidents, according to a 2012 report by the National Transportation Safety Board.


On average, 360 people died annually (about one per day) in roughly 260 fatal wrong-way collisions, a phenomenon first studied by the federal agency in 1968 during its investigation of a multiple fatality wreck near Baker, Calif.
Driver impairment by alcohol was identified by investigators as a factor in 60 percent of fatal wrong-way collisions, according to the NTSB report. Furthermore, more than half of those wrong-way drivers had blood-alcohol concentration at or above 0.15, more than double the rate of impairment in most states.
Other key findings within the NTSB study included that drivers over the age of 70 constitute about 15 percent of at-fault drivers in wrong-way wrecks and that the primary origin of wrong-way movements is entering an exit ramp.
“Other mechanisms resulting in wrong-way movement include making a U-turn on the mainline or using the emergency turnaround through the median,” the report found.
Seventy-eight percent of wrong-way collisions occur between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., and a disproportionate number of them occur on the weekends. Most wrong-way collisions  take place in the lane closest to the median, according to the report. Some are by illegal passing.

1 dies in hospital, no arrest December 9, 1945 General  George S. Patton's Head-On Car Accident or Assassination Tech Sgt Robert L. Thompson leads one of two trucks which have been waiting by the side of the road until the approach of General Patton's Caddilac. Thompson says he was drinking the previous night, and he and two buddies had commandeered (or possibly stolen) a duece and a half truck for joyriding. They were sixty miles from their ordered posting. He was slightly drunk when he claimed he was pulling into a depot to return the truck, and later changed his story to a side road, but neither was close to where he failed to signal, hit the gas, and acoording to Patton's driver, steered directly into the nose of Patton's car with no other possible reason other than to deliberately hit a target. Patton's driver could not avoid a collision. Patton hit the front seat, hurt his neck, and was paralyzed. He died later in the hospital on December 21, 1945. When Woodring, Patton's driver yells "Do you know who you hit? This is General Patton", Thompson grins drunkenly and tells his companions "General Patton, do you believe it?"

He slashed the throat of the driver with a box cutter utility knife, then Igric grabbed the steering wheel and tried to turn it into oncoming traffic, causing it to flip on its side. Seven people, including Igric, died as a result from the crash. At 4 a.m., Igric lunged at the driver and slashed his throat. He proceeded to grab the steering wheel in an attempt to direct the vehicle into oncoming traffic. Although there were suggestions of terrorist activity after the recent September 11 attacks had happened, the media concluded that Damir Igric was just an innocent Croatian restaurant worker with a history of mental illness with no apparent connection to any terrorist motive. Others who believe he was a muslim terrorist note the suspect was a Croatian Muslim Army veteran who at 19, volunteered to fight in Croatia's 1991 war for independence from Yugoslavia,and that Al Qaeda and Iran supported Muslim fighters in both Bosnia and Kosovo.  He had a history of drug and weapons arrests in his native country.
