Request Accident Reports
If you would like a copy of an accident report, you must submit a request through the Texas Department of Transportation Crash Reports and Records website using the Crash Report Online Purchase System.
You will search for a crash report using the Name of a person involved in the crash, Driver License/Identification Card Number of a person involved in the crash, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of a vehicle involved in the crash, or the TxDOT Crash ID assigned to the crash.
It can take up to 14 days from the Crash Date for the Crash report to appear available online. You will be assessed a fee for a copy of the report, you may choose between a certified or uncertified copy and a redacted or non-redacted copy of the report.
For further information please refer to the Crash Report Online Purchase System FAQ webpage. If you have any questions or need help regarding the request and processing of your report, please contact the Crash Records Information System at 1-844-274-7457.
