Definition:

The owner of property, public or private, damaged by the involved vehicle.

Rationale:

The extent of property damage is recorded in order to capture damage done to private or public property in the crash report. This will allow the property owner to seek repair of the damages. In many instances, the town or utility owner will need this information in order to know who (the person or insurance company) to charge for the repairs.
