- crash direction and strength;
- if more than one crash occurred;
- if rollover accident occurred (if your vehicle is equipped with rollover sensor);

Note:The function of collecting above information of items 1-4 is estimated to be realized by the end of 2010. The detailed extent of the information collected depends on your vehicle's equipment and configuration.
Note: when driving certain vehicles, if your operation is violent, it also may cause an automatic calling to the OnStar customer service center. In this case, you need only tell the customer service advisor that you did not suffer crash accident.
