GUAM - When it comes to car accidents, determining who is at fault is not always clear. That's when the reconstruction of the scene comes into play -- Institute of Police Technology program coordinator Kyle Clark explains.
"We are trying to train some of the law enforcement here on Guam on the technical aspects of traffic crash reconstruction. In other words we are looking to help them find out what exactly happened at a major crash."
Determining speed, whether those involved in the crash were using seat belts, and could have things occurred differently if the speed limit was followed are factors used to analyze every aspect of a crash to determine who was right and who was in the wrong. While the laws of physics do not change, technology does and making sure that the officers reconstructing a major crash are up to date with these advances contribute to their ability to properly analyze the crash.
