Indiana Crash Reports

Find Your Crash Report Online

If you were involved in a car accident in Indiana, it would be a good idea to get a copy of the incident report documenting your crash. In Indiana, law enforcement uses these documents to catalog the relevant information that relates to auto accidents in the state. The Indiana State Police are responsible for maintaining a central repository of all crash reports for the entire state of Indiana.

These crash reports are filled with information about the accident in question like: the date of the crash, details about the damage done, the time and location of the accident, and more. This information is incredibly important when it comes to things like court cases and insurance among many others. Below you’ll find more information on crash reports in Indiana and information on how to request yours.

What are the legal requirements to request an accident report in Indiana?

You can request your own crash report and so can any parties immediately involved in the accident, such as the owner of the vehicle (if that isn’t you). You do not need a lawyer or attorney to be able to request your crash report, but they are able to do so with special permissions.
