You drive on the road north and then another vehicle that moves south crosses the median and heads straight for you. They've lost control and know they've brought their last swerve here — and they're afraid to make another pass.

One vehicle is necessarily involved in a single-car collision but this does not mean that the driver is always at fault. Typically caused by swerving to avoid a single driver from hitting something — either an object or a weaving driver — and ends up colliding with a guardrail or tree, or an electrical pole. The weather is always a factor in these cases which can pose unavoidable hazards in your way. Your best choice is to slow down or draw close to a blind corner when you round a curve (allowing safer reactions).

You are the victim of a hit and run accident all of a sudden. Do not try to persecute them, even if you are physically capable. Just pause. Onlookers can follow but you need to concentrate on accepting support from others and evoking a 9-1-1 response in the meanwhile. If either you or a witness can distinguish the type of vehicle and color of the fleeing driver, it would definitely be useful in catching them. You also committed a crime by fleeing the scene, and if there are injuries the offense will escalate to a felony.
