Source: National Safety Council, Itasca, IL, Accident Facts, 1997 edition. http://www.nsc.org/lrs/statstop.htm * Accident is that occurrence in a sequence of events that produces unintended injury, death, or property damage. Accident refers to the event, not the result of the event (see unintentional injury).

Death from accident is a death that occurs within one year of the accident.

Fatal accident is an accident that results in one or more deaths within one year.

Motor vehicle is any mechanically or electrically powered device not operated on rails, upon which or by which any person or property may be transported upon a land highway. The load on a motor vehicle or trailer attached to it, is considered part of the vehicle. Tractors and motorized machinery are included while self-propelled in transit or used for transportation. Nonmotor vehicle is any road vehicle other than a motor vehicle, such as a bicycle or animal-drawn vehicle, except a coaster wagon, child's sled, child's tricycle, child's carriage and similar means of transportation; persons using these latter means of transportation are considered pedestrians.

Motor-vehicle accident is an unstabilized situation that includes at least one harmful event (injury or property damage) involving a motor vehicle in transport (in motion, in readiness for motion, or on a roadway, but not parked in a designated parking area) that does not result from discharge of a firearm or explosive device and does not directly result from a cataclysm. [See Committee on Motor Vehicle Traffic Accident Classification, (1997), Manual on Classification of Motor Vehicle Traffic Accidents, ANSI D16.1-1996, Itasca, IL: National Safety Council.]

Motor-vehicle traffic accident is a motor-vehicle accident that occurs on a trafficway-a way or place, any part of which is open to the use of the public for the purposes of vehicular traffic. Motor-vehicle nontraffic accident is any motor-vehicle accident that occurs entirely in any place other than a trafficway.

Nonfatal injury accident is an accident in which at least one person is injured, and no injury results in death.
