By collecting evidence, photographing and measuring the accident scene, they are able to reconstruct what happened, to include the direction and speed a vehicle was traveling prior to the accident. The Accident Investigators use specialized equipment to pull data from the vehicles involved in the crash that tell use the actions of the driver/vehicle just prior to the crash. They also have the ability to scan the accident scene with specialized equipment to recreate that scene for criminal and civil prosecutions.
