The accident module captures and indexes the
basic information found on a traffic accident form. This includes the
basic data concerning when and where the accident occurred and what the weather,
road and traffic conditions were at the time of the collision.
Additionally the accident module has the ability to capture and
unlimited number of associated persons and vehicles. Both persons and
vehicles are classified to indicate how they related to the collision.
Accident General Information
|The General Information section of the Accident
Module captures key information such as the agency assigned accident
number, Date, Time and Location. This page also captures important
weather, roadway and traffic related information which was present at
the time of the accident. This additional information is derived from
user definable code tables which maintains consistency and accuracy within the
data when dealing with fields which have many possible variables.
Accident Associated Names/Persons
|This section captures the name, drivers license
#, address and telephone number and physical description of each
person referenced in the accident report. The module indicates the persons
relation to the accident as being either a Driver, Passenger,
Pedestrian, Witness or Other. Then each person is assigned a
"Party #" which can then be used to reference people as being
together in a vehicle and which provide a link to the vehicle
referenced on the vehicle page. Names associated with an accident
are linked to the Master Name Index Module.
Accident Associated Vehicles
|This section captures information about the
vehicles involved in the accident. Each vehicle is assigned a number
which relates it to people associated with the accident. Standard
information such as vehicle license, make, model, style and color are
captured stored within the accident module and are linked to the
Vehicle Index. Other accident related information such as the
direction of travel, speed, movement preceding collision, damage and
location of damage can be maintained.
