Any driver/owner/passenger or their agent or legal representative may purchase a copy of the Crash Report for a fee of $4.00. The reports are available approximately 7 days after the date of the crash at the THP District Office. This can be purchased through the mail, or by visiting their office in person. Access a complete listing of THP District Office locations can be found at the bottom of this section.

If the crash was investigated by a law enforcement agency other than the THP:

You can also contact the agency that investigated the crash to purchase a copy of the report from their office.
