STUDY OF POST-CRASH FACTORS IN AUTOMOBILE COLLISIONS. VOLUME 2
This is the final report of the results of a study into post-crash factors, fire, submergence, fuel leakage, and extrication-evacuation in automobile collisions. This is a special studies effort as a part of the Utah Multidisciplinary Highway Crash Investigation Research. The report presents the study area statistics with respect to the driving population, vehicle population, and accident population; and compares these statistics to the State of Utah and national statistics in order to assess the study area representativeness. The incidence rates for each of the four post-crash factors was assessed based on data collected over a one-year period.
