NO it does NOT show date and time of the crash and NO it does not show the shift position for the 5 seconds before the crash but the notion that either of those is required for admissibility is, well, laughable.
If the damage matches, if other aspects match, if there's no other fairly significant rearender that this car's ever experienced, where else would the data come from?
The first test is: is this data from this crash? That can be answered by more than or other things than date and time.

While the EDR data does not have a date/time stamp, there are several pieces of data that would suggest that this is your event. As stated by Rusty, the recorded event was a rearend impact, as the vehicle had a positive longitudinal velocity change. Also, the the data indicates that there has only been one (1) front/rear crash event that resulted in the airbag system being triggered (woken up) in the history of the airbag module installed in the vehicle, and that event is the one being reported in this download.
Using the pre-crash data, you will find that the four seconds of information indicates that the vehicle moved a distance of about 11 feet during that recorded time period. If the vehicle was simultaneously backing and turning, such as typical when backing out of a parking spot or a driveway, it's likely that the vehicle traveled much more than 11 feet during its backing maneuver before the driver shifted into Drive. Because of the amount of time it took her to back her vehicle, it may a be reasonable argument that the other driver had more than sufficient time to see your wife backing into the roadway and avoid an impact.
