Any traffic accident which causes no death to any persons on public thoroughfares involving a utility operated motor vehicle should not be reported.

c) Accidents to persons resulting in immediate death, or in death within twenty-four (24) hours from the time the accident occurred, should be reported as "killed." All other accidents to persons, including those resulting in death of the person injured, after an interval of more than twenty-four (24) hours from the time the accident occurred, should be reported as "injured."
