2020 Minnesota TZD Webinar Series: Case Reconstruction—Building Your Case After Leaving the Scene

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

About the Webinar

Fatal crashes are often complex investigations, and adding a drunk or drugged driver makes them even more complicated. This webinar explored strategies that can help make cases during the follow-up investigation, including backtracking suspects’ activities leading up to the crash, Drug Recognition Evaluator reconstruction, crash reenactment, obtaining toxicology results, understanding the legal issues in adjudicating drug-impaired drivers, and preparing for trial.
