    One hundred and forty-two post mortem reports of road accident deaths in the Windsor accident area have been reviewed. Although head and chest injuries accounted for the deaths of most of these victims, twelve died of inhalation asphyxia and another eighteen died of hypovolaemia due to haemorrhage from otherwise minor injuries. Some of these cases would perhaps have survived if they had received skilled medical attention at the most critical time.
