How do you categorize a car accident as a cause of death?

Is there a Category for someone who walked away from 14 car accidents (None Their Fault) ?

 P.S. = Post Script. You can call me "Blessed" & "Lucky",

Blessed Lucky...Stays up on the porch w/ the old dogs now. JPVIV :)
Lucky?  :D

Vincent, my worst wreck was: 

While driving Taxi-Cab Longview, Tx, 1:59 Am Just as the Bars were closing... Lynyrd Skynyrd was on the Radio playing : "Call Me The Breeze" towards the end of the song they say "Mister Breeze" Then Boom! T-Boned me & the spun into a telephone pole.

 I have not always walked close to the Lord my God, Jewish Carpenter, B. Bethlehem. 

 Lucky is a derivative of the word Lucifer, Or so I am told :) 

Yes indeed Blessed & Lucky :)

Hi Tina,

Your records are so secure I cannot tell which country you looking at, but in the UK it's classified as a fatal road traffic collision (RTC), a coroners (not like the American version) report is produced and there is a inquest, I'm not sure how long those records are locked for. Usually a verdict is given like in a court case, most are classed as accidents, but some are misadventure, some are medical incident at the wheel and some are suicide. There is very likely to be more information in the local papers in the area as most local news covers RTC's. I suspect most countries will follow a similar procedure though.

This is the profile of a cousin of mine that died in a car crash in Canada, for an example, I hope it helps

Hi Tina, A category is usually set up to make it easier to group profiles.  One of the questions I always ask is whether a category would serve a purpose.  If you had lots of Chases who were all involved in fatal car accidents, maybe.  Or if cancer was a cause of death in many of a particular bloodline.  But otherwise, isn't it meaningless?  Is anyone really going to use WikiTree to look up how many people were killed in automobile accidents?
