Suicides, homicides and other deaths often occur in vehicles. Vehicles may be involved in pedestrian accidents or man be used to transport injured people to medical care facilities. Such incidents can result in contamination of the vehicle with blood, body tissues, and fluids which make the vehicle a danger to anyone who is exposed to it.
In the case of a recovered stolen vehicle, it may contain drugs, drug paraphernalia and other undesirable items left by the culprits. These items can pose serious threats to anyone entering the vehicle after it has been returned. The owner or repair shop personnel needs to consider the potential hazards and should refer these vehicles to 24Trauma for proper decontamination.
