Driver Injury Severity Related to Inclement Weather at Highway-rail Grade Crossings in the United States.

Previous studies on crash modeling at highway-rail grade crossings were aimed at exploring the factors which are likely to increase the crash frequencies at highway-rail grade crossings. In recent years, modeling driver's injury severity at highway-rail grade crossings has received interest. Since there were substantial differences among different weather conditions for driver's injury severity, this study attempts to explore the impact of weather influence on driver injury at highway-rail grade crossing. Utilizing the most recent ten years (2002-2011) of highway-rail grade crossing accidents data, this study applied mixed logit model to explore the determinants of driver injury severity under different weather conditions at highway-rail grade crossing. Analysis results indicate that driver's injury severity at highway-rail grade crossings is strongly different for different weather conditions. It was found that the factors significantly impacting driver injury severity at highway-rail grade crossings include: motor vehicle speed, train speed, driver's age, gender, area type, lighting condition, highway pavement, traffic volume and time of day.
