In 2.4.18 Traffic crashes are road vehicle crashes in which the unstabilized situation and harmful event originate on a trafficway. Clarification is needed to address situations in which the unstabilized situation or harmful event originate outside the traffic way, but continue onto the trafficway. Example 1: a person is struck and trapped under a driverless vehicle that is rolling out of a driveway. The vehicle comes to rest within the trafficway with the person still under the vehicle.
Example 2. A person is struck by a vehicle in a gas station, and is drug into the driveway access.
An example under the existing “Exclusions” would aid in addressing these situations as EXCLUDED from being traffic crashes.
-A road vehicle in-transport has both its unstabilized situation and harmful event originate on a private way
-The unstabilized situation and harmful event originate outside the trafficway but continue onto the trafficway
-A person is struck by a truck in a gas station lot, trapped beneath the vehicle and drug into the driveway access or roadway
