Impact Induced Fires: Statistical Analysis of FARS and State Data Files (1978-2001) 2005-01-1421

This paper is a part of a larger report (Friedman, Kenney, & Holloway, 2003), Impact Induced Fires & Fuel Leakage: Statistical Analysis of FARS and State Data Files (1978-2001). This larger report included a review of the literature of fire and fuel leaks in post-collision passenger vehicles from 1957 to 2003, replicated Malliaris' (1991) methodology in his landmark study of post-collision fires in the State of Michigan and FARS data, and furthered the analysis by examining post-collision fires and fuel leaks with three state accident databases-Maryland, Illinois and Pennsylvania. The current paper is focused on the conclusions and overall recommendations for data collection and analysis based on the findings from the state accident databases and FARS analyses.
