BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) The jury in the trial of Dr. James Corasanti was shown computer generated images of the accident scene on Heim Road, Amherst where 18-year old Alexandria Rice was killed.

Prosecutors say the doctor was drunk-driving and texting when he struck the teenage girl as she rode a longboard around 11:20pm on July 8, 2011.

The high-tech scale diagrams depict an impact that was so forceful, that it caused a "low vault scenario" - tossing the victim's body at least 40-feet through the air.

The computer calculations reveal that the victim's body skid along 38-feet of dry concrete, before coming to a rest 167 feet from the point of impact.

Amherst Police Senior Investigator Robert McMahon testified that Alexandria Rice's cellphone was located an additional 27-feet beyond her body.

During the testimony, the victim's father, Richard Rice, was visibly upset.

Defense Attorney Tom Burton strongly objected during the presentation of the digital evidence, claiming some of the measuring points came from the memory of a witness.

Investigator McMahon is expected to remain on the witness stand through Tuesday's session.
