We construct the two-flux colliding plane wave solutions in higher-dimensional gravity theory with dilaton, and two complementary fluxes. Two kinds of solutions have been obtained: Bell-Szekeres (BS) type and homogeneous type. After imposing the junction condition, we find that only the BS type solution is physically well-defined. Furthermore, we show that the future curvature singularity is always developed for our solutions.

The equations prove that these horizons are unstable in the full nonlinear theory against small but generic perturbations of the initial data, and that in a very precise sense, ''generic'' initial data always produce all-embracing, spacelike curvature singularities without Killing-Cauchy horizons.
