3.7 Crash Classification by First Harmful Event
3.7.1 introduction: The purpose of this classification is to describe a road vehicle traffic crash in terms of the first harmful event that occurred.
3.7.2 categories: Under two broad classifications, there are eleven mutually exclusive categories for classification of road vehicle traffic crashes (See 126.96.36.199) and ten mutually exclusive categories for classification of other-road-vehicle traffic crashes (See 188.8.131.52).
184.108.40.206 motor vehicle crashes: Motor vehicle crash categories are:
o Collision involving other-road-vehicle in- transport
o Collision involving parked motor vehicle
o Collision involving railway vehicle
o Collision involving animal
o Collision involving fixed object
o Collision involving other object
• Noncollision crash
o Overturning crash
o Jackknife crash
o Other noncollision crash
3.7.3 guide to classification: The use of the first harmful event rather than the most severe or significant harmful event is specified for uniformity in reported road vehicle crash statistics. For analytic purposes, it may be desirable to collect and use information about subsequent harmful events.
