There was a time that a collision reconstruction was believed to provide all the information needed to understand why a collision occurred. However, the advancement of complex litigation strategies has changed that approach. Nowadays, modern collision assessments require a detailed understanding of both vehicle and human elements. Join Mark Fabbroni and Dr. Adam Campbell as they discuss the power of combining collision reconstruction and human factors in crafting your litigation and claims strategy, from file intake to trial.

Cyclist was in driver’s blind spot, defence crash specialist testifies

‘[Victim] would have been in the driver’s blind spot,’ senior collision reconstructionist tells court

The truck involved in the crash that killed Ottawa cyclist Nusrat Jahan didn’t have side guards. (CBC)

A collision reconstructionist called by the defence at the trial examining the cycling death of Nusrat Jahan says the driver of the construction truck would not have seen her when they were stopped at a red light in downtown Ottawa.

Steven Conley, 40, has pleaded not guilty to criminal negligence causing death and dangerous driving causing death.

Jahan, a 23-year-old student originally from Bangledesh, was cycling to school on the morning of Sept. 1, 2016, when the truck struck her at the intersection of Laurier Avenue W. and Lyon Street just before 8 a.m., pinning her under its rear wheels.

Mark Paquette, a senior collision reconstructionist with 30 Forensic Engineering in Toronto, conducted a blind spot analysis of the fatal collision for the defence team.

Paquette has been a forensic engineer for 10 years, developing specialities in reconstructing vehicle collisions of both cars and commercial vehicles and analyzing driver blind spots.

He has not yet been qualified as an expert by Ontario Court Justice David Berg.

Tested blind spot

In late May, Paquette went to an Ottawa parking lot with the same Tomlinson vehicle involved in the collision.

Paquette placed himself in the driver’s seat and adjusted his seating position to Conley’s height.

An assistant put a rod equal to Jahan’s height to the right side of the passenger door. The rod was moved back in increments in order to determine at what point the rod was no longer visible to the driver.

The engineer then layered that data over 3D photographs from the fatal intersection — including the stop lines as they were at the time of the crash.

Paquette concluded that when Conley and Jahan were stopped at the red light, the driver couldn’t see Jahan on her bicycle.

“Ms. Jahan would have been in the driver’s blind spot, she would have not been visible to Mr. Conley when they were both stopped at the stop line on the red light,” Paquette testified.

Bike stop lines moved since collision

At the time of the collision there was a 1.77-metre separation between the bicycle and vehicle painted stop lines marked on Laurier Avenue W.

After Jahan’s death the city moved the stop lines, and there is now five metres of separation.

In court, defence lawyer Dominic Lamb asked Paquette if he agreed with the blind spot analysis conducted by Det.-Const. Greg Rhoden, who concluded that Conley would not have seen Jahan from the cab of his truck.

“I would agree with that,” Paquette replied.

Rhoden was replaced on the investigation for “unrelated reasons” and his replacement, Det.-Const. Alain Boucher, conducted a re-enactment at the fatal intersection.

Boucher’s report was revealed in court to contain several key mistakes, and Berg ruled Monday that Boucher wasn’t qualified as an expert witness, and both his testimony and report are inadmissible.

Paquette told court Boucher’s finding that Conley would have been able to see Jahan was “incorrect” because he used a stand-in driver taller than Conley and used an incorrect location of the bicycle stop line.

The Society of Automotive Engineers International Publishes 30 Forensic Engineering Research Paper

(TORONTO) — 30 Forensic Engineering, Canada’s leading and fully-independent multi-disciplinary forensics firm, is pleased to announce that the Society of Automotive Engineers International (SAE) has published a technical paper produced by the 30 FE Trucking and Collision Reconstruction groups.

Titled “A Study of In-Service Truck Weights” – the paper was presented by Mark Fabbroni, Principal Trucking, at the SAE World Congress in Detroit, Michigan on April 5, 2017. This event is the annual global meeting place of the automotive industry. The 30 Forensic Engineering presentation was part of the “Occupant Protection: Collision Reconstruction” session of the Congress, which is dedicated to “the latest research related to methods and techniques for reconstructing vehicle crashes.”

Mark Fabbroni, Jennifer Rovt and Mark Paquette (members of the 30 Forensic Engineering Trucking and Collision Reconstruction groups) developed the paper in response to a data gap they discovered relating to the weights of heavy vehicles such as tractor-semitrailers, straight trucks and combination vehicles travelling on North American roads. When such vehicles are involved in collisions, their weights are rarely known. As collision reconstruction relies on the availability of accurate numbers for use in calculations and simulations, this lack of data is a significant barrier to producing accurate reconstructions.

About the Research Paper
The team discovered that the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario had conducted a Commercial Vehicle Survey in 2012, which sampled the weights of over 45,000 heavy vehicles of various configurations. Fabbroni, Rovt and Paquette gained access to this data and immediately recognized its value in the context of collision reconstruction involving heavy vehicles. The next step was to organize the data into a practical resource, which could be referenced by professionals in their field. The resultant paper analyzes weight data according to the vehicle configuration, body style, and total number of axles and presents the results for the empty and in-service weights of the surveyed trucks. Through comparing these results to prior studies, the 30 Forensic Engineering team was able to conclude that the results should be applicable to most North American jurisdictions.

About SAE International
SAE International, founded as the Society of Automotive Engineers, is a nonprofit organization that develops and publishes standards used for the aerospace, automotive and commercial-vehicle industries. Headquartered near Pittsburgh, SAE standards are authorized, revised and maintained by over 9,000 engineers and other professionals and are used by 120,000 members located around the world.
