Whereas the person who apparently committed suicide by driving his car head on into a concrete wall at NPH last year is not considered a road toll statistic.

No, if cause of death is heart attack it won’t count toward the road toll.

I’m kind of curious – what if a heart attack caused the accident but the occupant also suffered survivable head injuries from the accident?
