Median crossover crashes occur on divided roadways and involve an errant vehicle departing the travel lane, traversing the median, and striking either a fixed object on the roadside or an oncoming vehicle in the opposing direction of travel. These types of crashes are associated with the highest risk of fatal and severe injuries among all collision types on Interstates due to the increased travel speeds of the involved vehicle(s) and the sharp angle of vehicular impact.
