BBC Crash series concludes insight into fatal Northern Ireland collisions

BBC Northern Ireland's concluding episode of the documentary series Crash will air on Wednesday, September 20.

The two-part programme has given viewers a "360 degree insight" into a number of fatal road collisions on our roads in the past few years.

The series follows the process from the moment of impact, to how a PSNI investigation unfolds and what it means for those involved - namely interviews with loved ones of those who lost their lives.

Crash has gained access to the specialised PSNI Collisions Investigation Unit which examines dozens of fatal crashes on Northern Ireland roads every year.

Viewers will follow the specialist investigators as they carry out their work – gathering evidence, arresting and interviewing suspects and building a case.

This unit works closely alongside Forensic Service NI and cameras follow the work of scientists as they rewind and unravel the events leading up to impact and piece together the jigsaw of facts that led to the collision.

The series will also let viewers observe the role of the Public Prosecution Service of Northern Ireland who work closely with the Collision Investigation Unit during the process of building cases.

Lawyers have to assess whether there is enough evidence to sustain a prosecution and whether prosecution is in the public interest.

Crash will air on Wednesday, September 20 at 9pm on BBC One Northern Ireland.
