Police Reports – Accidents/Crashes

You may obtain a copy of a Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report (CR-3) by using the TxDOT Crash Report Online Purchase System. Customers using the online system receive their report(s) via email following the purchase. As of January 2023, the cost for a Crash Report is $6, or $8 for a certified copy (an official document often required for legal proceedings, etc.).

Those unable to use the online system may submit a request by mail. Visit, then scroll down to the section titled “How to file a subpoena or affidavit for crash records” for instructions.
