Crash Investigation I, click here for  Flyer April 22-May 3, 2019 East Moline

Crash Investigation 1, based on J. Standard Baker’s world-renowned text, Traffic Crash Investigation, is an in-depth study of the skills needed to systematically investigate a traffic crash.

Techniques for recognizing and properly recording roadway and vehicle crash evidence are thoroughly presented. Students learn to take measurements and photographs of the crash scene and to create sketches and after-crash diagrams. Crash Investigation 1 also addresses how the collected data are used to reconstruct crashes. Finally, the use of electronic devices to collect and record at-scene data is also introduced.
