If it is documented that the patient was involved in a crash and he/she was the driver of a jeep, would you consider a jeep a car or truck? Also, if it states the MV was a SUV, what is a SUV – car or truck?

Per ICD-10 guidelines, SUV is included in the same category as pick-up truck or van. Although Jeep is not specifically defined in ICD-10, I recommend including Jeeps in the SUV/pick-up truck or van category.
