The main purpose of the current study was to determine the extent to which a pre-existing medical condition or acute medical event was a contributing factor in crash causation for a representative sample of casualty crashes. The study involved examination of the circumstances surrounding drivers, riders, cyclists and pedestrians involved in casualty crashes on public roads in South Australia who were admitted to the Royal Adelaide Hospital over the three year period from January 2008 to December 2010.
