Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coroner's reports, police records and the state crash database provided information on 65 crash fatalities in the Kimberley region of Western Australia from 1990 to 1994. Passengers travelling in the open load space of utility trucks comprised 18 per cent of fatalities. Open-load-space passenger fatalities were associated with open highway or community access road travel. The fatality rate for the region was 41.5 per 100,000 population and the rate ratio for Aboriginal to non-Aboriginal fatalities was 2.5. Only 50 of the 65 identified deaths were included in official crash statistics. State crash statistics do not provide information on the position of passengers in road crashes.
