Individual reports may be requested on the TxDOT Crash Reports and Records Web page.

Texas Peace Officer's Crash Report Forms

This section contains the most current CR-3 materials and should be used to report all crashes occurring on or after Jan. 1, 2010. As of Jan. 1, 2010, the CR-3 and CR-3C (Commercial Motor Vehicle Supplement) were combined so that the CR-3C information is now part of the CR-3 form.

The CR-3 Alternate was made available on July 1, 2011 as an alternative to officers who choose not to use the 2010 CR-3 form. Officers who choose to use the CR-3 Alternate should refer to the CR-100 Alternate instructions for filling out the form. A Notification to Law Enforcement on the use of the CR-3 Alternate is available.

Note: These forms are for use by law enforcement only. Web browser compatibility information can be found using the Online Forms FAQs.
