Abstract

Previous researchers who have looked at the problem of Australian Aboriginals involved in road crashes have examined data about Aboriginals killed in crashes as this has been the only kind available. The aim of the present study was to describe the characteristics of Aboriginals and non-Aboriginals hospitalised in Western Australia after a crash. The results suggested that Aboriginals were over-represented in casualty road crashes on a per-capita basis but that they did not differ in the patterns of injuries received or in injury severity when compared to non-Aboriginal casualties. Additional data are needed to further examine these issues.
