TRI-LEVEL ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION SUMMARIES. LEVEL 3A. INJURY CAUSATION. VOLUME 2, NUMBER 1
The report briefly describes the tri-level accident investigation concept. Three levels of information are collected: exposure and accident rate information; accident information on a large sample of accidents not normally collected by the police; multidisciplinary in-depth information collected on a small sample of accidents by a team of professionals. The report contains Level 3A accident summaries from the tri-level study. The summaries are brief descriptions of injury-producing accidents investigated to determine the injuries and interior components which caused the injuries. The volume contains summaries of 50 injury causation cases.
