PENNDot comment on injury totals:
"Federal reporting requirements have mandated a change in the definition for some of the “injury severity” levels. Pennsylvania adopted the new federal definitions as of January 1, 2016. While the changes may seem subtle, they change the data pretty significantly. Therefore, one cannot really compare the 2015 and prior year injury severity totals to that of the 2016 year numbers."
