Why are Accident Reports Important?

When a police officer arrives at the scene of an accident, they create a report that contains details about the crash. Accident reports include the officer's account of the accident and any other information and observations.

Accident reports contain the following information:

  • Date, time, and location of the crash;
  • People involved in the crash, along with their insurance information;
  • If a ticket was administered, and if so, to who and for what violation;
  • Weather and road conditions during the crash;
  • Vehicular damage;
  • Involved parties' injuries; and
  • Any other relevant information.
