|Occupant Kinematic Accident
|Occupant kinematics, as it pertains to accident reconstruction, is aimed at explaining the motion of occupants inside a vehicle
during a crash. Accident reconstruction experts utilize Newtonian laws of motion to explain the paths that vehicle occupants
follow and the method in which they react to external forces.
Imagine the following scenario:
Two vehicles collide at an intersection. The driver of Unit #2 is wearing his seatbelt, while the driver of Unit #1 is not. As Unit #1
and Unit #2 make first contact, Unit #1 and its driver share the same directional heading and speed. Likewise, Unit #2 and its
driver share a common heading and speed.
