After a major road crash, conducting crash investigation is generally the next step. But the road accident spot analysis is not carried out as per the procedure in most of the road crashes in India. Although crash spot studies are conducted by associated officers, the procedure, implementation, and post-investigation studies are charge framed, nontechnical, and not available in the public domain. The study aims to investigate the techno-legal aspect of the crash site investigation of a typical crash from Bengaluru which occurred between the motorbike and the car. Crash spot was studied, analysis of accident spot parameters, and vehicles inspection observations are correlated and used to infer the reason for the crash. This article aims to highlight the importance of scientific investigation of the road accident site and the sequence of activities happening after the occurrence of the road accident with a case study.
