Crash reports now available online from PA State Police

HARRISBURG, Pa. - People can now search and electronically obtain copies of crash reports investigated by the Pennsylvania State Police. 

They officially launched a website that includes a crash report database, which can be queried by case number or the date of the crash and last name of an involved party, according to a news release from the state police.

It costs $22 for an electronic copy of a crash report, which can be paid online by credit card or bank account draft. 

Reports usually become available within 15 days after a crash is reported.

However, Pennsylvania law states that only certain parties can access a report, including those involved in the crash, their attorney, and their insurance company, the news release states.

“The Pennsylvania State Police is pleased to make this tool available to the citizens of Pennsylvania,” said Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Tyree C. Blocker in the news release. “The paperwork associated with even a minor crash can feel overwhelming. By embracing technology and creating an online portal to obtain relevant documents, we hope to relieve some of the stress associated with a motor vehicle crash.”
