See category explanations below

Listed categories were, in my opinion, the cause of the accident.  Following is a clarification of some of the categories.

Truck is semi, cement, etc.

Equipment category is farming equipment or road working equipment.

Buggy means one buggy hit another buggy or a buggy hit a car.

Human Error/Other means not being able to keep horse under control.   For example:  horse turned into wrong road. turned to quickly, etc.

Noise/roadway examples:
   uneven or wet roadway
   barking dog or animal sound
   open grate bridges
