Marion County Crash Team
The Crash Team is an interagency unit made up of Sheriff's Deputies and Oregon State Police, Salem, Keizer and Woodburn Police Departments. Their charge is to investigate all fatal and major non-fatal traffic accidents where a contributing factor may be criminal in nature. Crash Team members assist the primary law enforcement agency in the collection of evidence, diagram, measurement, and reconstruction of the accident scene. Training for the team is extremely intensive and time consuming. Deputies selected for this team are recognized "expert witnesses" and their expertise is called upon in various locations throughout the state.
Traffic Crashes are the leading killer of people ages two to 34. National statistics gathered for 2006, 2007 and 2008 show 111,100 fatal traffic crashes. Oregon had 1,198 fatal crashes during that same time frame. Traffic crashes kill an average of 36,700 people each year. Crashes also resulted in a direct cost of $19,000,000 and an indirect cost of nearly $62,000,000 to the citizens of Marion County based on 2002 crash statistics.
