Police Investigation Methods

In some states law enforcement are are using the downloaded data from the vehicle’s black box / event data recorder (EDR). Some department’s are uses the EDR as a stand alone accident investigator tool, which is somewhat questionable.  Once the vehicle is impounded (in police custody) is the data to be downloaded requiring a warrant or not (warrant-less issue). This is determined by a state to state and/or as well as a Fyre (standard) or Daubert (standard) hearing.  Other police departments use different methods to determine the cause of the accident.
