Describes the methods and philosophies of Arthur Damask, a 67-year-old physicist and teacher at the City University of New York, who investigates automobile accidents as an expert court witness. The author presents a first person account of Damask's sleuthing abilities when searching for the cause of a collision. Includes details of one memorable case in which a young man was spared a 60-year prison sentence after Damask determined he was not the driver of a car which was split in two after striking a concrete guardrail.
