MNPD Crash Reports Now Available On-Line
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Obtaining a police report for a vehicle crash in Nashville has just become much easier.
Chief John Drake this afternoon announced that residents involved in automobile accidents investigated by the MNPD can now receive copies of their crash reports free of charge by logging onto the website www.crashdocs.org.
“The on-line availability of most crash reports eliminates the hassle of driving to our Records Division in Madison or filling out and sending in request forms that took time for staff to process,” Chief Drake said.
Reports can be accessed five to seven business days after the accident by entering the date of the crash, the specific police report number given to each involved motorist by an officer at the scene, and an involved party’s name. A person accessing a crash report through http://www.crashdocs.org/ must certify that he/she was involved in the accident, is an attorney for an involved party, or is an insurance representative of an involved party.
Reports of crashes involving pending criminal charges and those involving fatalities will not be available from the website. Crash reports from August 2020 forward will be on-line.
