Fundamentals of Statistics for Traffic Crash Reconstruction
by Andrew Rich and Michelle Fish-Rich

This book was written to provide traffic crash reconstructionists with the basic underlying principles, and practical useful application of statistics, that may be directly applied to their investigations. The authors provide all of the necessary tools needed to accurately calculate crash data and analysis, including help for those who wish to use Microsft Excel® in their calculations. Examples and exercises, many of which are directly related to traffic crash reconstruction, are used throughout the text to demonstrate situations where the analysis could be applied in the field. Reconstructionists will consult this manual often to assist them as they encounter similar situations in their careers.
