In the framework of data science we carried out an analysis of the NYC car crashes. The main goal of this report is to find out (1) if the fatalities happening in accidents are correlated with the speed of the cars, more specifically to check the hypothesis that pedestrians hit by a car at 25mph are half likely to die compared to 30 mph; (2) if the weather conditions do have an influence on the involvement of multiple cars; and (3) which ones are the most important features needed in order to predict the probability of an injury to happen in a car accident.
