60/24 = 2.5 car crashes in one minute
60 seconds in 1 minute, how many 24 second time intervals fit into one minute? 2.5 crashes each minute

How do you determine a half crash?
@hero, sometimes these stats represent averages. that means one minute there might be 2, but one minute there might be 3. The average is 2.5
That didn't exactly answer the question, "How do you determine half a crash?", but okay.
This is the danger in stating statistics VERY BADLY, such as this problem statement. It obviously leads to ludicrous results. There is no such thing a ½ a crash. I shake my head almost daily when wuch things are reported. "Every 3 minutes, _______ is diagnosed." Hogwash. "Every 4 hours, __________ is suffered by someone." Utter hogwash. It should read something like this, "Over a very long period of observation, it was observed that the average time between car crashes was about 24 seconds." It's a random distribution, not a fixed point in space and time.
Okay, that's enough raving for now...
