Abstract

With data from multidisciplinary investigations of child pedestrian injuries in Chicago, a new and simpler four-category taxonomy is presented based on the process that led to the collision. Two dimensions are recognized: the visibility of the child and/or the vehicle immediately prior to the event and the rapidity of action, either movement or change in direction, of the victim or the vehicle. The taxonomy is neutral with respect to responsibility for the collision and accommodates the findings of other researchers.
