The police report was unclear with regard to who ran the red light. There were many pieces of evidence our expert used to reconstruct who most likely ran the red light.
Evidence was obtained from the City of San Antonio which told us the type of light sequencing device that was used at that particular intersection. We also downloaded the modules in both vehicle that told us the rates of speed five seconds before impact as well as four, three, two, and one second before impact. The module told us about brake usage and cruise control.
