DRIVER INJURY IN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS INVOLVING CERTAIN CAR MODELS: AN UPDATE

This report is an update of a study on driver injuries in crashes of particular make and year automobiles. The variables considered were: the make and year of the vehicle, the type of driver injury, the type of crash: the speed of the vehicle, the impact site on the car, and the object of impact (car vs. car, car vs. fixed object, ran off road). These were then compared to a reference group which consisted of injuries suffered in 140 crashes of all possible car and accident types. Tables are presented giving, by make-model groups, the injury indices and their statistical significance.
