Copies of Crash Reports

We collect two types of crash reports – those submitted by law enforcement officers and driver's crash reports. Both are available to the public for a processing fee.

  • Texas Peace Officer's Report
    This report is completed by a law enforcement officer investigating a traffic crash when apparent damage is $1,000 or more, or when the crash resulted in injury or death.
     
  • Driver's Crash Report (Blue Form)
    This report is completed by a driver involved in a traffic crash when the crash is not investigated by a law enforcement officer and apparent damage is $1,000 or more or when the crash resulted in injury or death.

Under state law, before crash reports can be released the requester must provide at least two of the following pieces of information:

  • Date of the crash
  • Location of the crash
  • Name of any person involved in the crash

Costs and Ordering

  • $6.00 for a regular copy
  • $8.00 for a certified copy

A certified copy is requested when a person needs an official document, such as for a legal proceeding. To obtain a copy of either report, please complete the appropriate request form and mail it with the required payment to the address shown on the form.
