    E811-car is pulled over on the side of the rode and then as driver tries to return on the road car is hit

    E812- accident between vehicles in traffic-rear end collisions, head on collision, any type of collision between vehicles while driving in traffic or on road; if a car is stopped or stalled on the road

    E813-accident on road between motor vehicle and non motor vehicle: bicycle, person riding horse, cart being pulled by mule; the other vehicle doesn't have a motor that powers it
    E815-loss of control with that involves collision with something such as fallen tree, animal, guardrail other than another vehicle; these items must be on the road or part of the road

    E816-accident due to loss of control hitting something that is not on the road, rollovers that does not involve a collision on the road, rollovers that hit a tree on the side of the road, hitting any object not on the road after leaving highway due to loss of control
