|Street Sign Accident
Often, accident reconstructionists will have to attribute specific damage on a vehicle to a stationary object such as a
The vehicle to the right struck a curb, stop sign, and tree. The smooth curved damage and yellow paint transfer on the
vehicle's front/left fender explains what portion of the damage on the vehicle was caused by the street sign.
The depth of the intrusion caused by a collision
with a street sign is often determined by the
size/shape of the object struck as well as the
speed of the striking vehicle. Off road excursions
will often result in collisions with street signs.
Attributing specific damage on a vehicle to a
collision with a street sign may help an accident
reconstruction expert better understand the
orientation of the vehicle when it left the roadway.
The direction which a traffic sign is bent can often disclose the
direction of force that was exerted on the object. In the picture to the
left, the stop sign has been bent toward the viewer.
The damage to the vehicle, as well as the damage to the street sign,
would suggest that the striking vehicle was moving off the roadway
when it side swiped the sign with its front left fender.
The accident reconstructionists at Crash Data Services, LLC will
carefully evaluate all damage resulting from a given collision, to
include vehicle damage, roadway damage, and street sign damage.
