The Crash Analysis Reconstruction (CAR) Team and SLCPD Crime Lab technicians responded to the scene.
The CAR Team is a multi-jurisdictional crash team that investigates crashes involving serious physical injuries or death. Members of the CAR Team receive specialized training in collision examination, speed analysis, vehicle dynamics, occupant kinematics, scene photography, surveying equipment, crash scene mapping, evidence collection and computer aided drawing programs.
The CAR Team includes law enforcement from the Salt Lake City Police Department and several other Salt Lake Valley law enforcement agencies.
The Salt Lake City Police Department’s Peer Support Team, a branch within the SLCPD’s Wellness Program, consists of sworn law enforcement members, professional staff and the department’s mental health clinician and a chaplain. The team provides emergency on-scene mental health support and provides services, advocacy and resources to officers and employees who have experienced trauma. Because of their level of training and capability to deploy 24-hours a day, the team may assist other law enforcement agencies or city divisions as necessary.
