State police doing live crash tests

The New York State Police will conduct a live human crash test Saturday at the former Seneca Army Depot in Romulus.

Crashing will be W.R. “Rusty” Haight of the Collision Safety Institute, who holds the Guinness World Record for the “Most Human Subject Crash Tests.”

The training provides troopers with experience to adapt to continually changing technology to investigate collisions with an eye toward prevention.

The unique method of data capture and recording technology employed by Haight will be used by the State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit to improve the variety and quality of their annual in-house training program.

Training will consist of imaging data in air bag modules, commonly referred to as “black boxes,” found in most new passenger vehicles.
