Median barrier crash severity: some new insights.
Hu W, Donnell ET.
Accid Anal Prev. 2010 Nov;42(6):1697-704.

Rationale for inclusion:  Statistical analysis of median types with regards to injury outcomes - cable barriers and increased distance to barrier causing less injury than concrete dividers.

Citations - 52 (as of July 2017)

Comparison of roadside crash injury metrics using event data recorders.
Gabauer DJ, Gabler HC.
Accid Anal Prev. 2008 Mar;40(2):548-58.

Rationale for inclusion: Comparison of data from in-vehicle event recorders vs. crashes with known changes in velocity (delta-V) indicates that delta-V alone is sufficient to predict injury.

Citations - 65 (as of July 2017)

Exploring the overall and specific crash severity levels at signalized intersections.
Abdel-Aty M, Keller J.
Accid Anal Prev. 2005 May;37(3):417-25.

Rationale for inclusion: Statistical review of highway intersections with regards to traffic signals.

Citations - 147 (as of July 2017)

The crash severity impacts of fixed roadside objects.
Holdridge JM, Shankar VN, Ulfarsson GF.
J Safety Res. 2005;36(2):139-47.

Rationale for inclusion: Statistical analysis of roadside barriers - indicating that design of the end-caps on highway barriers matter.

Citations - 96 (as of July 2017)

Accident prediction models for roads with minor junctions.
Mountain L, Fawaz B, Jarrett D.
Accid Anal Prev. 1996 Nov;28(6):695-707.

Rationale for inclusion: Statistical analysis of highway intersections with secondary roads.
