The report, Volume 1, presents the proceedings of the Motor Vehicle Collision Investigation Symposium conducted by Calspan Corporation, October 5-10, 1975, in Buffalo, New York. The objectives of the Symposium were to exchange ideas and to discuss: future accident investigation plans and programs; new technology for improving the state-of-the-art accident investigation; accident study designs; improved field data collection, and accident data reduction and analysis. Major emphasis was placed on new or planned federal data systems, collision reconstruction and accident causation methodology. A major feature of the Symposium was a Crash Clinic in which a two car staged collision was investigated and reconstructed by a composite investigation team made up of members of teams throughout the United States. (The Clinic is described in Volume 2, Final Report and Crash Clinic.)
