Accident Report-Obtain and Accident Report


Every driver of a motor vehicle involved in a crash that results in injury or death, or total property damage of $1,000 or more, must file a crash report within 10 days of the incident.

Requests may be submitted twenty (20) working days after the date of the crash.

In addition to verifying insurance, traffic crash data helps government agencies analyze traffic crashes. Knowing how, when, where and why crashes occur help to make our roadways safer for everyone.​
