  • Truck Tractor Trailer Crash Analysis
    Description:The purpose of the Truck Tractor Trailer Crash Analysis Report is to examine the impact of truck tractor trailer (TTT) motor vehicle crashes (MVCs) that occurred on Tribal lands in Arizona, 2009-2013. The primary focus is to describe the burden of injury and fatality due to TTT MVCs and identify opportunities for interventions to reduce the burden of morbidity and mortality from TTT MVCs on Tribal lands in Arizona. The data included all reports of MVCs in Arizona that were filed by law enforcement with the ADOT from 2009 to 2013.



  • Tribal Transportation Safety Summary
    Description:The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc. (ITCA) and Tribal Epidemiology Center (TEC) are assisting tribes to address a major health disparity for American Indians — motor vehicle crash unintentional injuries. As a public health authority, the ITCA TEC has the capacity to secure and analyze large data sets, such as crash data, hospitalization discharge data, trauma data and IHS patient medical data, and to administer grant programs. Since 2000, small grants, to support a variety of transportation safety projects, were contracted with ITCA by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). Starting in 2008, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Office of Minority Health (OMH), has funded the ITCA TEC for motor vehicle crash injury prevention, which has resulted in pass through funds to several tribes within the IHS Phoenix Area.
