SACRAMENTO – California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Director and State Public Health Officer Dr. Karen Smith today announced CDPH has received a $636,975 grant to study injuries and deaths from motor vehicle crashes. 

“Motor vehicle-related injuries are a leading cause of death for people in California and across the nation,” said Dr. Smith. “This grant allows CDPH to expand data collection and analyses, which will help us better understand why people are seriously injured and killed in motor vehicle crash and, more importantly, how to prevent these crashes.”  

The funding, from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, allows CDPH’s Crash Medical Outcomes Data Project to continue to produce useful traffic and medical data to help reduce traffic-related injuries and deaths. Several areas of focus will include more accurately measuring severe injuries, assessing alcohol- and drug-impairment-related crashes and translating data into information that local communities can use to make roadways safer. Individual-level crash data are currently accessible via CDPH’s online system, Epicenter.
