One of the primary sources of information and inspiration in the creation of new, more secure solutions in traffic organization are the occurrences with most serious consequences called accidents (air), serious accidents (rail) or catastrophes (road, sea). Accidents investigation is usually conducted in terms of searching for the reasons of these events and to make preventive recommendations aimed at elimination of these causes. In this paper, it is proposed to draw more attention to the events

A model of real serious traffic incident, created with the use of stochastic, timed Petri nets is presented. Simulation experiments were carried out, which allowed for determination of the probability of transformation of the incident into the accident. The proposed method of analyzing serious traffic incidents also allows to determine the effectiveness of the barriers that have prevented an accident in a real occurrence.
