Almost all road deaths are reported, but some serious injuries are not reported and only a minority of slight injuries are reported - see the discussions in the annual DfT reports.
"Car occupant" includes car driver, car passenger, taxi/private hire car occupant, and minibus (8 - 16 passenger seats) occupant, in line with DfT practice.
