Vehicles are classified by body type and weight as small, medium, or large cars, small or standard vans, small or standard pickups, or multipurpose vehicles. Accident involvements, injuries, incapacitating injuries, and fatalities are presented. Injury rates per registered vehicle and per accident involved occupant are calculated. The counts and rates are given for all crashes and for frontal, side, rear, and rollover crashes separately.
