Traffic crashes are documented in one of two ways:
State Crash Forms:
These forms are completed by the investigating officer. They are used for crashes involving any type of injury and/or damages resulting in at least $1000. These forms can be obtained online by clicking here.
Driver Crash Forms (Blue Forms):
If you were involved in a minor crash that was not investigated by a law enforcement officer, you may submit a Driver Crash Report to the Texas Department of Public Safety using this printable form. This must be done within 10 days of the crash.
SPD officers may investigate motor vehicle collisions that result in injury or death of a person or property damage to an apparent extent of at least $1,000 and file justifiable charges relating to the collision. Officers are not required to investigate collisions that occurred in privately owned parking areas or a privately owned parking lot where a fee is charged for parking or storing a vehicle.
