Environmental Characteristics

According to the 11-year retrospective study on fatal ambulance crashes in the United States, 132 (38.9%) fatal crashes occurred between the hours of 1200-1800hrs [5]. This elevated representation of crashes during these hours is consistent with other studies whether being fatal [17] or non-fatal [4, 17]. These studies surprisingly did not show a significant difference in the number of fatal and non fatal crashes based on the month or season of the year.
