A traffic collision, also called a motor vehicle collision, car accident, or car crash, occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree, pole or building. Traffic collisions often result in injury, disability, death, and property damage as well as financial ...
- Traffic accident, motor vehicle accident, car accident, car crash
This makes motor vehicle collisions the leading cause of death among young adults of 15–29 years of age (360,000 die a year) and the ninth cause of death for all ages worldwide. In the United States, 40,100 people died and 2.8 million were injured in crashes in 2017, and around 2,000 children under 16 years old die every year.

What are the effects of multiple vehicle collisions?
A multiple vehicle collision (colloquially known as a pile-up, multi-car collision, multi-vehicle collision, or simply a multi) is a road traffic collision involving many vehicles. Generally occurring on high-capacity and high-speed routes such as freeways, they are one of the deadliest forms of traffic collisions.

Hello fellow Wikipedians, I have just modified 2 external links on Epidemiology of motor vehicle collisions. Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQfor additional information. I made the following changes: 1.

I moved following addition by 188.8.131.52 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) from the article because it needs rewrite for English grammar and clarity. The text is incoherent and likely misleading in its current state. Please wait for other editors to assist with rewriting this before moving it back into the article. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 19:26, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
I believe the section related to crash should be increased by those points: G-force should add some link to G-force as G-forcemight be involved in deceleration as explained in two sources: 1. https://www.michigandriverimprovement.com/the-dynamics-of-a-car-crash-2. 2. http://www.floridadriver.com/src/English/Regular4/topic/chap02.html timing should add some word to document in which time frame this happen. I assume this might be quantified; for instance a 3,6 km/h speed should be close to 1 meter par second, and 36 km/h speed should be close to 1 meter per 100 milliseconds, even if I also assume that with other factors the exact timing might be more complex. At least, this source deals with tenth of a second. It also provide another source that I cannot access. According to Crash_test_dummy(but wikipedia is not an acceptable source) a typical crash last 100–150 millisecond. class of users I believe some words should be provided for each class of road users: 1. pedestrian, because eve...
Collision is short-duration interaction between two bodies or more than two bodies simultaneously causing change in motion of bodies involved due to internal forces acted between them during this. Collisions involve forces (there is a change in velocity). The magnitude of the velocity difference just before impact is called the closing speed.
