  1. FI-4-3 Injuries Reported in Frontal Impacts in Swedish Accident Data Presentation to GRSP Informal Group on Frontal Impact March 10, 2009

  2. Purpose • Investigate injury data for vehicles reported in Sweden • Identify if newer vehicles have introduced any critical changes to personal injuries

  3. Material • Swedish accidents reported in the STRADA database • Linked hospital and police data • Provides AIS injury information • No definition of accident severity (EES, DV, etc.) • No confirmation of seatbelt use in database

  4. Conclusions • The material contained interesting information on injuries but could not be applied in current GRSP activities • No information on impact severity (needed to identify test severity requirements) • Limited information for newer vehicles (needed to identify exposure and establish injury rates) • Information has application in compatibility studies when comparing vehicle-vehicle impacts
