Often the most effective law enforcement techniques and tricks are the one serendipitously learned ones. In this case, the police now have a new way of conducting a search without having to get a warrant. Next time if they suspect someone of doing something illegal in their house, all they have to do is crash a car into their home and do a ‘crash investigation’.
