Witness to an Accident [motion picture] Indiana U Audio-Visual Center

Indiana U Instructional Support Ser 1961
Brief Annotation:
Reconstructs a three-car personal injury accident to show the role of police officers in gathering the physical evidence at the scene of the accident and the importance of this evidence. Following the officer's attention to the injured and securing of the scene from further hazards, he and a second officer begin their investigation. This includes interviewing eye witnesses, testing one of the driver's sobriety, measuring skid marks, and noting location of cars and extent of property damage. As the officers file their reports and opinions of the events leading to the accident, flashbacks verify their opinions.
