CHATANOOGA – According to Wrcbtv.com, police have employed 3D scanning technology for the purposes of learning what caused a deadly motorcycle accident last Monday, December 2, 2018. The victims of the crash were identified as 32-year-old Clinton Gard and 36-year-old Brooklyn Lynam. Gard was driving the motorcycle and Lynam was a passenger.
The crash took place on Barton Avenue when the motorcycle was traveling eastbound and went through an intersection before striking a guardrail. The police arrived at the scene and found that the two individuals had been killed.
The driver of the motorcycle was a paramedic with the Puckett Emergency Medical Services.
The Veteran’s Memorial Bridge was blocked with signs and barricades and drivers were detoured for around seven hours.
Around a year ago, the Chattanooga police purchased technology that is helping officers investigate these types of accidents.
3D scanners are used to recreate traffic accidents and to help officers process the scene by offering 360-degree views of the crash scene. The scans will show everything from the day of the incident thereby preserving the scene and helping officers better understand what had occurred.
This crash, in particular, created certain challenges for officers. For instance, the crash took place on one level, and the victims were located at a lower level. Another factor that made the scans more difficult was that the crash happened at night. The time at which the scans were taken made the process take longer, but the information is still helping officers learn more about the events that took place and to work more efficiently to determine the cause of the collision.
