ANSI classifies crashes separately, while MMUCC classifies in groups, i.e; Collision with Person, Motor Vehicle or Non-fixed object. Which works best - individual or grouped classifications? I would also suggest that we generally replace the use of the word "accident" with the word "crash". The federal transportation legislation, MAP-21 uses both terms and seems to use them interchangeably. Its time that we do the same, but we can say, we choose to replace the accident terminology with crash.

From a field reporting and data analysis perspective, I would suggest group classifications provide a better means of crash identification. One large drawback of individual classifications is the inherent need to include an additional category when any definition or element changes or additions occur. The current group is growing so large that nearly every crash might fall into a different category, though there is only a slight deviation in incident details.  This opens a new challenge when data analysis is conducted. If grouping is used, care must be used ensure that group classifications are not so broad that all individuality of crash incident details are lost.
