In 2015, 1,200 Australian lost their lives on our roads, with thousands more suffering serious injury. The economic effects alone are enormous (estimated at 27 billion dollars a year), but thats only scraping the surface the social consequences are devastating.
This emotion shaking series straps the viewer in the hot seat to reveal how the impact of road trauma ripples far beyond the crash itself. Get behind the wheel and watch tragic stories unfold first hand through the ye of those first to attend these horrific scenes – the police traffic and crash investigation officers, the paramedicis, firies.
Emotion and drama pulses thick and fast as we follow those lucky enough to survive, from their rescue at the wreckage, to being rushed into emergency and trauma wards, and their long gruelling road to rehab.
The collision may be over in seconds, but the aftershock lasts a lifetime.
