dc.description.abstract Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) is one of the common cases that was brought to Forensic Department for post-mortem examination. Injuries due to MVA had been very serious and fatal. Based on this, a retrospective study was conducted on post-mortem cases involving MVA cases starting from 1 st January 2008 until 31 st December 2012 at Jabatan Perubatan Forensik, Hospital Pulau Pinang. This study was conducted to determine the demographic data with regards of gender, race, age, and common cause of death involving MVA victims. A total of 604 cases obtained from post-mortem record books. The result showed that males victims (85.3%) were higher compared to female (14.7%). Categorization based on race indicates that Chinese (45.4%) dominated the other races followed by Malay (32.9%), Indian (15.4%), and others (6.3%). Those aged between 21-30 years (20.4%) had the highest incidence among other age groups. The most common cause of death due to MVA was head injury (56.6%). In conclusion, post-mortem examination on dead body due to MVA should not be underestimated. Proper attentions must be taken to prevent fatal injuries among MVA victims. en_US
