How to Get a Car Accident Report or Police Report in Kentucky

If you are involved in a car accident in Louisville or anywhere else in Kentucky, it is important that you contact the police immediately to file an accident report. A police report or accident report (Kentucky Uniform Police Traffic Collision Report) can be important even in accidents where it appears no one is injured. This police report/accident report will record the names of all parties involved in the accident, the time and date of the accident, the location of the accident and the property damage caused by the accident. Kentucky accident reports also list the apparent contributing factors (such as weather, lighting conditions, driver "inattention", etc). Accident reports also list available automobile insurance information and any citations that were issued. The investigating officer will file the accident report with the police department and the report will be available for you on-line or via U.S. Mail.

It is easy to obtain a copy of a Kentucky accident report on-line. There is a company that has a website to handle requests for car accident reports for Louisville and all of Kentucky. The website is called www.buycrash.com (www.buycrash.com/Public/Home.aspx). There is a fee for each accident report that can be paid by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or American Express) or PayPal. Accident reports are only available to the people involved in the accident, the parents/guardians of a minor involved in an accident, the insurance companies, or attorneys representing someone who was involved in the car accident. Once you are on the website 'buycrash.com' you must select "Kentucky" from the dropdown box and then select "Find Document". You will then be directed to a screen that looks like this:

Enter the required information, enter your credit card or Pay Pal information, and then you will be able to print a copy of your Kentucky accident report.

Written requests need to be addressed to the Kentucky State Police post that worked the accident. Written requests should include a self-addressed stamped envelope and a $5.00 check or money order payable to Kentucky State Treasurer.
