An analysis is made of thirty-six selected traffic accidents that were investigated by the multidisciplinary Stanford crash analysis team over the period of July 1970 to March 1972. Data from these thirty-six cases are presented in summarized form to support the overall conclusions and recommendations developed during the course of the investigations. Appendices include summaries of each of the reported cases, selected dynamics calculations developed during the investigations, the SCAT interview questionnaire, and on-scene cue card. One section presents a new velocity-crush equation based on change of velocity.
