Depending on where your accident occurred there are potentially $count Police Agencies that could have attended your accident and completed the report.
ALL of these agencies use the the Texas DOT CRIS (Crash Report Information System) and so obtaining a copy of your report from any of them is relatively easy.
Located in South Texas not far from both the US border and the Gulf of Mexico, Edinburg has a population of roughly 90,000 people. Over the past five years, the number of accidents occurring in Edinburg per year has hovered between 2,500 and 2,900, which turns out to be relatively stable when viewed through the lens of the rest of the state during this time period. This, not so coincidentally, proves the city to be of above-average safety when compared to other US cities as well.
In 2014, there were 2,631 accidents recorded in Edinburg. 2015 saw this figure drop slightly to 2,505, but increase to 2,935 the following year. This represents the high point for the city's accident volumes from 2014 through 2018, and this coincides with national trends for the year, and the five year period between 2014-2018 as well. Meanwhile, 2017's accident volume dropped slightly to 2,870 and then barely bounced up again the next year to 2,892.
Overall this represents little in the way of wiggle room over the past five years, with the majority of the change occurring between 2015 and 2016. This isn't out of character for Edinburg at all, as improving economic conditions across the US in 2015 made it less expensive to own a car, prompting Americans to spend more time on the road. The resulting higher traffic led to a jump in accident volume nationwide, something that apparently affected Edinburg much in the same way as other cities around the US, or at least seems to have considering how closely volume patterns mimic national ones.
Fatality rates in Edinburg follow some of these general nationwide trends as well. While there are some major differences, as the peak year for fatal accidents across the US was 2016 and the most deadly year in Edinburg was the year previous, but there are general similarities, such as an early peak followed by years that were less dangerous. This puts Edinburg in the ballpark, even if the score isn't exactly the same.
With a population of 90,000 and fatality rates exclusively in the single digits, Edinburg actually comes out more than just advantageously when comparing to national averages but is, in actuality, quite ahead of the game. With research revealing that the per capita death rate in the US was 12.8 per 100,000 people in 2018, Edinburg is sitting pretty at just 5 per 90,000 for the same year. While any death on the road is a tragedy, Edinburg's super-low per capita fatality rate makes this picturesque border town one of the safer cities in Texas, hands down.
