Crash Quick Response
Evidence is fleeting so it is important to document it as soon as possible. Evidence is affected by the passage of time and weather. Vehicles and machinery are repaired and put back into service, roadway construction zones are dismantled, tire marks fade. It is also important to collect the data in a time frame that is consistent with the crash.
A timely investigation of the scene and vehicles involved allows the reconstructionist to provide a comprehensive assessment of the situation. This allows the parties involved to make informed decisions.
