Causes of Significant Injuries in Nonfatal Traffic Accidents 660803

The Vehicular Trauma Research Group of the UCLA School of Medicine is currently conducting intensive studies of selected traffic accidents. Data is presented from an analysis of the first 150 traffic accidents studied. The role of vehicular design, mechanical failure and the performance of the new 1966 windshield in injury causation are discussed and illustrative examples are presented. The importance of detailed studies of traffic accidents is stressed as a method of yielding information not readily available by other methods of study. This approach is mandatory to evaluate new and pending vehicular design modifications and may be the only method of detecting and assessing the role of mechanical failure in traffic accident causation.
