3DF Pedestrian and Truck accident
A pedestrian is fatally struck in a crosswalk by a commercial truck going 35 in a 40 mph zone. In this case we used on-board video, laser scanning of the scene and vehicle, our drone photographs and worked with a police report that concluded the pedestrian was completely at fault. But why was the pedestrian even hit? The driver had over 225 feet and five seconds to stop. We present several "what if" visual calculations that show the driver had time to avoid the accident. Was the driver, unfortunately, not paying attention?
