The Swedish Transport Administration investigates fatal accident in Hjärsås

When a fatal accident occurs on a road it is always investigated by the Swedish Transport Administration (STA). This also applies to the fatal accident in Hjärsås, says Camilla Olsson, accident investigator at STA.

– We are looking into why the accident happened and what we can do to prevent it from happpening again. This includes both the road, the vehicle and the person involved, says Camilla Olsson.

The investigation starts straight away when STA is notified of a fatal accident. It usually takes about three or four months to complete.

– We collect information from the police, the emergency services and the forensic examination, says Camilla Olsson.

STA's aim is to eliminate accidents, that is, that no-one should be seriously injured or die in a situation involving traffic. The authority also follows a method of working called ”Safe road traffic”.

”The results are classified as secret, and are only for use internally”

But the investigations after a fatal accident are not made public.

– The results are classified as secret, and are only for use internally.

– We carry out the investigations to find out what has happened and to check what can be done to prevent it from happening again, she says.
