HYANNIS - This frightening scene above may look all too real but thankfully its not. Barnstable Police invited several area departments to a crash reconstruction demonstration.

A portion of Communications Way in Independence Park was closed off and a "dummy" was intentionally struck first by this van and then a car.

 

In all too many real-life cases like this scenario the driver flees the scene. Thats where specialists like Barnstable Police Reconstruction Officer Neal Guerin come in.

Guerin showed those gathered how to take measurements, and collect vital evidence that would be used to track down and convict a driver in a court of law.
