FINAL REPORT - THE PEDESTRIAN CRASH DATA STUDY 2001-06-0105
A Pedestrian Crash Data Study (PCDS) was initiated within the United States to collect detailed crash reconstruction data on pedestrian crashes from July 1994 until December 31, 1998. This paper will report on the pedestrian crash circumstances, including pre-crash, at crash, and injury consequences for the 521 pedestrian crashes that were researched during the four and one half years that the study was fully implemented.
Information on the first eighteen months of data collection was presented in a paper titled “Pedestrian Crash Data Study - An Interim Evaluation” at the ESV Conference held in June 1996. This paper was followed by subsequent analysis in 1998 at the next conference titled “Update on the Pedestrian Crash Data Study (PCDS).”
