MULTIDISCIPLINARY ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION SUMMARIES. VOLUME 5, NUMBER 5
Accidents are studied involving vehicles of the last three model years of fatal, injury producing, or property damage severity. The teams investigate the accidents in-depth and each element of the collision (human, vehicle, environment) as it interacts with each phase of the collision (pre-crash, crash, post-crash). The summaries consist of identification information, basic information on the highway and vehicles involved, a description of the driver and occupants with their injuries, a phase-by-phase description of the sequence of events of the collision, and a list of the causal factors, conclusions and recommendations. A diagram of each collision is included.
