Pedestrian Crash Investigation

By Alyse Ridpath

In early June, 2018, Wandling Engineering’s Professional Engineer, Dr. Alan Lynch, attended a two-day seminar titled: Pedestrian Crash Investigation.  The seminar was hosted by the Illinois Association of Technical Accident Investigators (IATAI).  The seminar discussed the investigation and analysis of pedestrian and bicyclist incidents involving motor vehicles.  Participants were able to witness, record, and collect information on staged pedestrian-vehicle collisions.  Below is a sequence of images of a van contacting a pedestrian dummy at greater than 45 miles per hour.
