This information includes:

  • The crash narrative, written by the reporting police officer, which details who they believe was at fault for the motor vehicle accident
  • A diagram of the accident scene
  • Witness statements and contact information
  • Any citations issued
  • The actions of the other driver at the time of the accident and following the accident
