Recently, the case of road accident has being a sadly and horrible phenomena which it was seriously concerning everyone. The road accident always occurred especially during the festival season where it terribly changes the mood of happiness into sadness and misery in this country. The statistic data recorded the driver faults/behaviors factor as the highest contributors for accident causation. Nowadays, many accident analyses have been conducted to investigate this global problems and one of the famous methods is using the simulation. This study highlight it strength and unique through the stresses of the accident influential factor which are speed and distance. Also, the analyses towards the energy equivalent speed (EES) give extra attention to this study where it is rarely discussed. Thus, this study purposely to investigate and verify the influence of speed, distance between vehicles and road type/design on accident causation. Moreover, this study also aimed to develop and analyzed the model of car-to-car accident configuration via simulation. Significantly, speed and distance is influenced to the accident which is the increased of speed and distance causes an incremental for EES value that related to injury severity. The speed also influence to the total impact that faced to car who involved in the crashed. The longest distance offered higher risks of having the severe or fatal injuries when accidents. Also, the road type/design also influenced the accident because straight road with minimum complexity of driving caused drivers more careless, negligent, easy to tail gating and speed etc. Instead, the bend road which giving a more level of complexity for road type/design has been identified to increase the driver alertness and awareness. However, when this road type used for over speeding driving, the accident caused very dramatic effect to the victims and also caused death Keywords – road accident, virtual crash, accident analysis, injury severity, energy equivalent speed (EES).
