Where does the crash data come from? The data for the Utah Crash Summary is derived from Utah crash reports. Law enforcement officers complete these reports throughout the state who investigate crash scenes on public roadways. Information is collected when a crash involves injuries, deaths, or at least $2,500 in property damage. Crash reports are uploaded daily to the Utah Department of Public Safety data warehouse for central collection. Additional information is collected on fatal crashes at the Department of Public Safety’s Highway Safety Office and compiled into the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) database. FARS is a national data system containing data on all fatal traffic crashes in the U.S.
