Add events and organize them in order so that the sequence of events gives a clear explanation of what has happened in the accident. A typical sequence of events starts with the first thing that happens after normal driving on a straight road and ends when the vehicle is standing still. The events possible to add are shown in the value list and all events that occurred during this last stage of the accident should always be added.

The event type defines the kind of situation the vehicle is exposed to. An event begins with the described situation e.g. impact, run of road, etc. and ends if it is superseeded by a following event. Skidding is only coded before an initial impact and rollover is only coded for the initial rollover situation.
