Keywords: road traffic accident, pedestrian, vehicle, mechanism of occurrence, velocity of movement

Abstract: In the present research the authors propose a graph-analytic approach to determine the position of the initial impact in the event of pedestrian accidents. When investigating the velocity of movement of the vehicle (participating in the accident), mechanics theorems and parameters are used, which are reported in a scheme and are consistent with the data, gathered from the scene of the accident. The present study uses case law data from a real road traffic accident. The proposed approach can find wide application in the practice of pedestrian accident reconstruction in the absence of specific data that uniquely identify the exact location in the lane in which the initial impact between the vehicle and the pedestrian had happened.
