SALT LAKE CITY — Hit and run cases are on the rise in Utah, and Salt Lake City Police Department officials said they’re often difficult to solve.
A group of investigators from agencies across the Wasatch Front practiced collision investigation techniques on dummies Wednesday.
“We are going to simulate a pedestrian that’s cross a roadway and a driver who is just driving down the roadway, and for whatever reason neither see each other,” said Sgt. Tom Potter with Salt Lake City Police Department.
Police officers said every piece of debris tells part of the story in an auto pedestrian accident. And details can be easily overlooked, especially at high stress and horrific crime scenes.
“This gives them the scene where they take the blood and all the gore away from it and just focus on the investigative skill necessary to resolve the case,” Potter said.
