The present study aims at researching about the relation between road accidents and road infrastructure occurred in single carriageway roads belonging to the Spanish provincial road network. In the first part, the main accident scenarios have been selected after analysing 'DGT accident database'. In these analyses, special stress has been devoted to characterize the infrastructure through using statistical tools. The second part has described deeper the existing infrastructure for the most common accident scenarios detected previously, although focusing only on the specific provinces of Valladolid and Patencia. In order to achieve the main objective, 'DGT accident database' and specific data sources of these provinces have been analysed together, obtaining a very thorough description of the existing infrastructure and road equipment in these accident scenarios.
