Summary. The objectives of the study are to summarize the data on road traffic injuries (RTI) as a result of road traffic accidents (RTA), to systematize the published data on the provision of medical care to victims of road traffic accidents and to study the regional features of road traffic accidents on the example of the Omsk region.

Materials and research methods. Materials of the study were statistical data on the number of road accidents, the number of victims in road accidents and other statistical data on road traffic injuries in the Omsk region and the Russian Federation as a whole.
Research methods were statistical and analytical.

Results of the study and their analysis. Based on the analysis of scientific literature and official statistical data for 2015-2022 it was revealed that in the Russian Federation and its regions the problem of road traffic injuries does not lose its relevance — the number of deaths and injuries in road accidents remains high. At the same time, the measures taken make it possible to reduce the number of road accidents and the level of road traffic injuries, as a result of which there is a steady decrease in the number of people killed and injured in road accidents.
In improving the organization of medical care for road traffic accident victims, special attention should be paid to medical care for children. The prospective direction of improvement of rendering specialized medical aid to victims of road traffic accidents is optimization of the system of medical aid at all stages of medical evacuation of victims from the place of road traffic accident taking into account the peculiarities of children’s road traffic traumatism.
