There are engineers here? Who? Where?

The experiment could get useful results, but you're right that they could be measuring the (higher) static coefficient of friction rather than the dynamic coefficient. It basically depends on whether they read the force guage when she was in motion or simply recorded the highest value. You're also right that if they use the higher number, they'll end up with a higher speed.

Most acccident investigators are pretty intelligent - they'll know at the very least basic physics, and probably a lot more. I'd give them the benefit of the doubt.
