The objective of the subject study was to increase the knowledge of the vehicle/pedestrian injury severity parameters to such an extent that the data could be the basis for programs aimed at reducing pedestrian injury severity. The Southwest Research Institute designed a pedestrain accident sampling plan that was representative of the total pedestrain accident population in the City of San Antonio; established working arrangements and procedures for notification of pedestrian accidents with the San Antonio Police Department; established procedures to obtain medical data (including x-rays) from medical facilities in the area; and investigated a total of 451 pedestrian accidents in the study area. This report addresses the sampling scheme, notification system, procedures developed, techniques used, and the problem areas associated with the subject contract.
