Road crash data

We record statistics on road traffic crashes in NSW. Our documents are used for research by road safety experts and for general information. To be included in these statistics, a crash must have caused a death or injury, or at least one vehicle was towed away. A report can be either preliminary or final:
  • Preliminary reports are based on data that is not complete when they are published. These reports can change and are often replaced.
  • Final reports are based on complete data and are not changed after they are published.
