  • Crash Investigation Kit

    For those of you who do Crash Investigation/Reconstruction:

    I am trying to compile a kit of equipment I need when I work a crash investigation or reconstruction. Similar in nature when a CSI goes to work a scene and has the proper stuff they need.

    Here's what is on my list so far:
    -100, 200, 300 foot tape
    -Rolotape
    -4 Foot Level
    -Traffic Vest
    -Electronic Protractor (to measure take-off angle and roadway grade)
    -Nylon string

    Anything else?

    You can get an inclinometer:

    an accident investigators template:

    I found a draftsman's set to be handy: It generally has a compass, protractor, 6" straight edge, triangles, etc.

    Inexpensive digital camera or 35 mm film camera.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

      I just took the basic 40 hour CVC 40600 class. All I use is a rollatape and a notepad. Digital camera if I remember it.

      Obviously I don't do reconstructions on fatals or even speed workups. They have guys that went to month long courses for those.

        Lumber crayon for marking the roadway.
        Spray paint.
        PK nails and hammer for setting baselines.
        "Rite in the Rain" waterproof paper.
        Drag sled.

          Take along a LIDAR that has a 'Surveying' function - It is better than a tape measure for measuring distances (No tape to wind in/ out or holding tight), It will calculate angles better, etc. Also include a box or two of surgical gloves of different sizes in case you find body parts which have been overlooked by your rescue services.
          If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence of your attempt.

            A line level, to go along with your nylon string, and maybe a tread depth gauge for tires, an air pressure gauge.

              This is by far the best traffic accident template out there.
