When do I need to file a crash report?

There are two types of crashes, non-reportable and reportable. A non-reportable crash occurs when there are no injuries and the vehicles involved are drivable. It is not necessary to have a police report on file for this type of crash. However, if you prefer, you can still call the department to have an officer file a report and verify the information the other motorist provided is accurate and valid. A reportable crash is when there are injuries as a result of the crash, or if any of the vehicles involved will need to be towed as a result of disabling damage. A report is required by state law. Failure to notify police of a reportable crash is an offense under the Motor Vehicle Code.
