    Title: Prevalence of Alcohol and Other Drug Use Among Motor Vehicle 
Crash Victims Admitted to Select Trauma Centers.
    OMB Control Number: 2127--New.
    Affected Public: Seriously- or fatally-injured victims of motor 
vehicle crashes presenting directly to the selected trauma centers or 
morgues shortly after a crash.
    Form Number: No forms.
    Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 
(NHTSA) seeks to examine the prevalence of legal and illegal drugs in 
the systems of seriously- and fatally-injured drivers and other crash-
involved road users (e.g., passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and 
scooter riders) presenting directly to the selected trauma centers or 
morgues. The participating trauma centers and medical examiners will 
provide the study with de-identified blood samples, when available, 
that were already collected during their routine clinical treatment 
activities. The study will then conduct independent drug toxicology 
testing to determine the prevalence of alcohol and other drugs in the 
systems of the participants. The trauma centers and medical examiners 
will also provide the study with other de-identified participant 
classification information such as patient demographics, cause of 
injury, and injury severity. The trauma centers and medical examiners 
will provide this already-collected and de-identified information to 
the study in accordance with all applicable Federal, State, and local 
regulations governing the sharing of such information and as approved 
by the study IRB. The trauma centers and medical examiners at the 
selected study sites universally draw patients' blood for clinical 
treatment or autopsy purposes. The trauma centers and medical examiners 
also collect other information such as patient demographics, cause of 
injury, injury severity, and drugs administered during treatment as 
part of their normal operating procedures. Therefore, there is no 
estimated time burden on the participants as the trauma centers and 
medical examiners will be providing the study with de-identified blood 
samples already collected, but not used, during their routine clinical 
procedures, and other de-identified information that was already 
collected as part of their routine clinical documentation procedures.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 0.00 hours per year.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: The study anticipates collecting 
de-identified information on approximately 7,500 seriously- or fatally-
injured victims of crashes.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the Department's 
performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for the 
department to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the 
information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized 
without reducing the quality of the collected information.
