How High Impact Recreates Collisions

After a semi-truck driver took his eyes off the highway for more than 30 seconds to search for snacks he dropped on the floor, he plowed into the back of an F-350 and pancaked it into the back of another semi in front of him. The F-350 driver died.

High Impact, where I work, recreated this collision in near-perfect detail using a wide range of laser scanning and accident reconstruction techniques.
I produced this video about how we did it, and wrote this case study about the result.
