In a car accident, physics can be used to determine how fast the car was going, who stepped on the brake first, and how fast they were going when they did.  In a crime scene, physics can be used to analyze blood spatters and bullet trajectory to determine where the shooter was, how tall he was, how close he was, and so on.
