Mock Traffic Crash

In conjunction with the Ohio State Highway Patrol, students in the criminal justice major at Mount Union are able to gather evidence from a mock road traffic scene that is set up on Mount Union’s campus. Two vehicles involved in real crashes are towed in and students have the opportunity to learn from OSHP Investigation Officers about their roles at the scene, as well as the procedures, techniques, and skills they utilize on site. Takeaways included:

  • Lifting fingerprints
  • Analyzing how the crash may have happened
  • Photographing the scene
  • Proper handling of evidence
