Vehicle crash research helps to uncover truth in Schirmer case

Using a sophisticated simulation developed by research colleague Omar Tarek, Penn State's Zoltan Rado conducted simulations at 50, 40, 30 miles per hour, and slower. These simulations show the amount of damage expected to occur in a vehicle accident at various speeds, and were key in determining that Arthur Schirmer's vehicle was traveling between 15 and 25 miles per hour, and not faster, as was originally claimed.
