The objective of this research was to quantify the impacts of various factors on three different severity levels of pedestrian injuries sustained in crashes reported at highway-rail grade crossings. This research utilized the 2007-2010 crash and crossing inventory data. The three crash severity levels of pedestrians’ injuries were: no injury, injury, and fatality. Data analysis showed that pedestrian fatalities were associated with higher train speeds and with female pedestrians. Highway-rail grade crossings with a greater number of crossing lanes and those equipped with standard flashing light signals were associated with a lower likelihood of pedestrian fatalities.
