This report provides a summary of fatal and serious injury of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia due to land transport accidents over the five-year period from 2005-06 to 2009-10. Due to data quality issues, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory were not included.

This is the fourth in a series of reports dealing with injury to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people due to transport. The main focus of the report is unintentional injury due to land transport. It includes information on:

  • age and sex distribution
  • mode of transport
  • remoteness areas
  • mechanism of injury
  • time trends.

The report also puts land transport injury into the context of all causes of injury and injury due to all types of transport. Detailed data are presented in the tables and charts.
