  5. Intersection crash: This is the place where most serious accidents occur.
  6. Off-road crash: These occur in parking lots, parking ramps and private drives.

  8. Rear-end collisions: These are the single most common accident type.
  9. Rollovers: These accidents are most often associated with SUVs.
