FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WISH) - The fifth day of testimony in the David Bisard trial was expected to once again focus on the crash scene.
Topics in court returned to the intersection of 56th Street and Brendon Way on Tuesday. The author of the crash report and accident reconstruction was scheduled to be called to the witness stand along with more police officers, according to Denise Robinson, prosecuting attorney.
24-Hour News 8's Trial Analyst Mike Loomis said video of the crash reconstruction could act as another witness in the prosecution's case presentation. Its impact on the jury could be powerful but might not ultimately provide proof a crime was committed, he said.
The reconstruction expert estimated Bisard was traveling 76 mph when his squad car hit a group of motorcyclists, killing Eric Wells, 30.
The prosecution started its case the week prior by calling witnesses to the crash, explaining the intersection to jurors.
Monday's testimony mostly centered on the blood evidence that showed the suspended officer was drunk on Aug. 6, 2010.
