Running head: QUESTION 5 3 Question 5 Based on the information that was provided, along with the different variables and factors that can dictate the modifications that involve the complete surroundings, it is safe to make the call that occupant A is the driver, while in the other hand occupant B is the passenger. It is difficult to come out to a conclusion, specially when giving the factors such as the vehicle did not posses air bags and the individuals were somewhat unconscious. Occupant A The reason behind why occupant A is more likely to be the driver in the accident, is due to the fact that occupant A had a laceration of the forehead. The laceration in the forehead can provide the intelligence that was due to hitting the individual’s head on the windshield. In order to achieve a broken femur, there must a tremendous amount of force and in this case it was caused due to the driver applying pressure on the break and applying tension on the legs throughout the impact. Also, the broken right thumb took place while holding the steering wheel as bracing for impact (Spitz, Clark, Fisher, & Spitz, 2006).  Occupant B In the other hand, occupant B more likely would be the passenger in this accident due to the possessing a fracture on the right ankle. This fracture to the right ankle could be the result of the individual bracing the feet to the firewall of the floor throughout the tremendous impact.

This incident can aid on explaining the individual’s injury Running head: QUESTION 5 4 to the right of the face and dicing as an outcome of several short lacerations from the glass.
