APPENDIX G: CRASH TYPING EXAMPLES

Contained in this appendix are 10 pedestrian crash reports and 10 bicycle crash reports that have been typed using PBCAT. These reports may be used as case study exercises for training on how to type crashes with the software. Provided at the end of each set of reports are the sequence of onscreen questions/directives encountered during the crash typing process and the correct responses. The answers shown are based on standard crash typing, not group typing. The report numbers that correspond to the answer sheets are found in the upper right-hand corner of the crash reports.
