STUDY OF POST-CRASH FACTORS IN AUTOMOBILE COLLISIONS. VOLUME 1
The investigated post-crash factors such as fire, submergence, fuel leakage, and extrication-evacuation in automobile collisions. The study presents statistics with respect to the driving population, vehicle population, and accident population of the 5-county area surveyed and compares these statistics to the state of Utah and national statistics. The incidence rates for each of the four post-crash factors was assessed based on data collected over a one-year period. The standard police report and a supplemental accident report were used to identify the post-crash factors of interest.
