Investigation of the correlation between factors associated with crash development has enabled the implementation of methods aiming to avert and control crash causation at various points within the crash sequence (Evans, 2006). Partitioning the crash sequence is important because intricated crash causation sequences can be deconstructed and effective prevention strategies can be suggested (Wu & Thor, 2015). Towards this purpose, Tingvall et al. (2009) documented the so-called integrated safety chain which described the change of crash risk on the basis of a developing sequence of events that led to a collision. This thesis examines the crash sequence development and thus, the transition from normal driving to safety critical scenarios.
