This emotive and dramatic reality series offers an insight into what happens to people involved in road trauma. It’s not about car crashes, but the people affected by the crash and how this ‘sudden impact’ changes their lives.
Produced using a mix of reality and documentary storytelling styles, viewers are put in the shoes of those involved; not just the victims and their families, but also witnesses, emergency workers and medical staff.
The show features a blend of observational filming, compelling re-enactments and documentary evidence. Camera crews capture the raw emotions and dramatic events which change the participants’ lives forever.
First broadcast 9 December 2008.
