Crash Investigation Unit

8:00pm – Wednesday, March 24 on Seven

This week on Crash Investigation Unit, a car collides with a power pole on the Central Coast, leaving the passenger severely injured.

The single-car crash scene at dawn is by no means the most complex Snr Const Pep Reid has encountered except for one thing, the driver has disappeared.

Until her key witness, the passenger, regains consciousness, Snr Const Reid will have to rely on forensic evidence to piece together what caused the collision. And even if she can prove her suspicions, she still has to find the culprit.

As Snr Const Reid works through the evidence, local Detectives scour the area.

PLEASE NOTE: Airs in Sydney and Brisbane only at this time.

Officers strive to find out what caused a crash which claimed the life of a grandmother en route to her first grandchild’s baby shower, this week on Crash Investigation Unit.

A joyous day for a family turns to heartbreak when a woman is killed in a terrifying collision on a busy road and her husband is left critically injured.

The driver of the other car, who was heading to collect her daughter from school, miraculously walks away unscathed.

The family, who were left waiting and will never celebrate their new addition the way they wanted to, want answers and even moreso, justice.

But even when the officer in charge of the investigation is getting to the bottom of the cause of the collision, he must go to extraordinary lengths to prove his case and get the answers the family so dearly need.

Each week Crash Investigation Unit puts a microscope on major crash sites and using state-of-the-art technology and techniques find out what went wrong and what could have been done to avert disaster.

The skill and perseverance of investigators is tested to the limit, tonight on CRASH INVESTIGATION UNIT.

Crash Investigation Unit shows that the impact of a car collision goes far beyond its immediate carnage. What happened is never clear-cut but if anyone can work it out, it the highly-skilled CIU motor sleuths.

As the C.I.U crew say, there is no such thing as an accident. There is always a reason for a crash and devastatingly, there is usually a way it could have been prevented.

Crash Investigation Unit, from the makers of Border Security: Australia’s Frontline, The Force: Behind the Line and Forensic Investigators, is a weekly journey through the anatomy of a car crash through expert eyes.

In interviews accompanying investigation footage, the families of victims consider what could have been, survivors reflect on their great fortune and witnesses recollect the shock of the moment.

CRASH INVESTIGATION UNIT is presented by DAMIAN WALSHE-HOWLING.

There is no such thing as an accident on the road. Every crash has a cause and it’s up to the highly-skilled members of the Crash Investigation Unit, the stars of Channel Seven’s new factual series, to find it.

In this series, viewers will see that the anatomy of a car crash is far more complex than the carnage found at first glance.

The Crash Investigation Unit is called out to crash scenes where there is either a fatality or a serious injury.

Each episode, presenter Damian Walshe-Howling takes viewers through not just the investigator’s journey but that of the victim, the family and the case as a whole.

While something hard to look away from is often referred to as “like a car crash”, few have been privy to what goes on after that deadly initial impact.
