This set of data for roadway safety pertains to the severity of injuries during a non-fatal crash event. The IDOT Division of Traffic Safety categorizes injury severity levels as: “A” (most severe), “B” (moderate severity), and “C” (least severe).
There was a total number of 107 “A” injuries (most severe) in the Champaign-Urbana urbanized area in 2018 (the most recent year with data available), a decrease of 6 “A” injuries from 2014. In 2018, the 5-year rolling average of “A” injuries in the urbanized area was 110.2, a 12.3 percent decrease from 125.6 in 2014 (2010-2014).
The table and chart below show the total “A” injuries for the municipalities and the urbanized area since 2005. Note that the urbanized area boundary, defined in the U.S. Census, changed in 2010.
