NOTES: A minor injury is one in which the victim was treated and released. A serious injury is one in which the victim was either hospitalized or treated and transferred to another facility, was dead on arrival, or died in the emergency room. A pedalcyclist is a person on a vehicle that is powered solely by pedals. Data are the share of injuries that were serious for one person type (e.g., the share of seriously injured pedestrians of all injured pedestrians).
