The accident reconstruction team of the Civil Guard rules out the run over by a van or a "utility"

Neither a "utility" tourism nor a van. The Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team of the Civil Guard (ERAT) concludes that the injuries that the body of Esther López presented when it was found in the ditch of the Traspinedo road more than twenty days after her disappearance are compatible with off-road vehicles and SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle), a type of car like that of Óscar SM, the main of the three investigated in the case of the disappearance and death of his friend. The specialists maintain in their report that there is compatibility of the victim's injuries with "the geometry" of the suspect's Volkswagen T-Roc vehicle. They detail six of the eleven most important injuries (there were multiple injuries, but none was fatal by itself, according to the forensic report) and relate them to specific parts of this vehicle on which a direct impact would have occurred.

Thus, the edge of the engine hood, with a frontal height of 0.80 centimeters, matches the height of the blow that Esther had (35 years old, 58 kilos, 1.64 meters tall plus the 0.03 of the heel of the boots he was wearing) under the left buttock. The injury she had on her right buttock is compatible with the edge of the hood above the right anterior projector. She believes the ERAT that this could be produced in the rotation movement that describes the body after the first impact on the left leg. There is another bruise on the back of the legs, about 40 centimeters from the edge of the heel that corresponds to the bumper.

A report links the death of Esther López with the car of the main suspect

the rear view mirror

In the right hip, Traspinedo's ill-fated neighbor had a posterosuperior dislocation of the right hip, which could have been due to the rotation movement experienced by the body at the moment of receiving the main impact of the right front part of the T-Roc. The head injury in the left middle biparietal area corresponds "to a direct impact with the right rearview mirror or as a result of the fall and impact with the ground." It is not ruled out that the right exterior rear-view mirror, due to its "geometry and morphology", could have caused Esther the injury she had on the back of her chest, at the height of her shoulder blade.

The car would have circulated at a speed of 45 kilometers per hour. In the simulation of the accident, the analysis carried out by the forensic experts of the injuries presented by the victim, who was walking at about 4.7 kilometers per hour through a still undetermined place (the accident did not occur where the victim was found), was taken into account. Body). No injury alone would have caused instant death, so the speed of the vehicle could not have been very high.

In the simulator, the T-Roc maintained a straight path and did not slow down after being run over

The first impact of the left leg was with the front of the vehicle, specifically between the front and the grille, together with the front bumper. As a result of the impact, the body rotated to the right and flipped over to the left side of the car. The blow caused a sudden rotation of the hip. At that time, the report indicates, the dislocation of the right hip must have occurred, leaving the head of the femur from the pelvic bone. Esther could no longer walk. After rising, her body suffered whiplash and she slid down the right side in a backward motion, while the vehicle continued to move forward. It was at that moment that the young woman was able to hit herself with the right rear-view mirror, first on her skull and then on her left shoulder, on the scapula. She then hit the ground headfirst with "a slight bouncing and dragging effect" to her final position.

According to the simulation used by Traffic, the Volkswagen T-Roc maintained its straight path, without steering wheel rotation sequences or speed reduction. It only increased slightly to 46.95 kilometers per hour, the report details. While Esther was displaced a little more than three meters beyond the point of impact, the car maintained its trajectory with no physical evidence of a sudden reduction in speed. What remains a mystery is where that outrage, described as "atypical" by specialists, took place.
