The CHP 555 ‘Traffic Collision Report’

A California accident or crash report is officially titled as the ‘CHP 555 Traffic Collision Report.’ It is used by law enforcement to record the details relating to an accident involving any type of vehicle. The details in the report are recorded by the officer who attended the scene of the accident. If a police officer did not attend your accident, then you must use a ‘SR 1 TrafficAccident Report’ to report the accident to the DMV within 10 days if (1) there was property damage of more than $1,000.00, (2) anyone was injured (no matter how minor), or (3) anyone was killed. The following documents and websites provide more information on the CHP 555 and the SR 1.

To obtain your accident report directly from the California Highway Patrol, you need to know which CHP office filed the police report and you must fill out a CHP 190 ‘Collision Request Form.’ To find out which CHP office filed your report, please call the CHP Headquarters at (916)843-3000. Once you know which CHP office filed the report, you can either mail in the CHP 190 to that office or visit the office in-person to retrieve your report.

3. Other Data Sites like LexisNexis or CrashDocs

These can be a good reliable source of data. However the sites can be difficult to use and do not have all the Police Agencies in California. (sometimes less than 50%)
