Motor vehicle collisions are a common cause of deaths or/and injuries. The key to lowering the death rate and damages to the health of collision accident victims is a timely arrival of Emergency Services to the accident scene. In the paper, we present and discuss the first results of the design and implementation of the vehicles collision detection system, which is based on a motion detector (MD) and Artificial Neural Network (ANN). To test MD and ANN separately, a small set of video records from traffic cameras that was not a part of a training dataset, were used. We found that while MD demonstrates reasonable performance, Haar Cascades-based pre-trained ANN requires significant improvements. Possible solutions to the aforementioned problem were proposed and discussed.
