Crash Reports

The Ohio State Highway Patrol maintains complete crash reports and crash photographs from crashes investigated by the Ohio State Highway Patrol only. The crash reports and photographs are retained for five years.

Please wait a minimum of seven business days from the date of the crash before attempting to order a crash report to ensure the availability of the completed initial report. Also, please be aware some crashes require additional investigation beyond the initial report. Additional information resulting from these investigations may not be available until such investigations are complete.

  • Photographs that accompany each report will cost an additional $12.00. Crash photographs purchased online will be sent in the mail; please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.

To order crash reports and/or photos online you must have a web browser capable of running Javascript, a valid credit card, and a viewer that is able to view TIFF images (do not use Quicktime). Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted.
