Motor vehicle crashes involving ambulances used for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) pose serious risk to both the crew and the patients. Data collection for ambulance crashes are regularly reported on a local or statewide basis and a need exists to compile and coordinate this data on a national basis. This project provides summary information that identifies available data sources for ambulance crashes, provides a limited analysis of the data, and recommends optimum data formats.
