TxDOT has an automated process for requesting and distributing raw crash data, including both the standard interface and the public interface. These files include all the crash data collected from the Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report (CR-3) that may be released to the public in accordance with Texas law.
The standard interface provides all information collected from the crash report, interpreted data fields, and roadway attributes for crashes occurring on the state highway system.
The public interface is similar to the standard interface information; however, personal information about individuals involved in the crash has been excluded.
Both the standard and public interface files are available in a CSV format.
A CRIS Automated Interface Guide is available to provide technical information on Crash Records Information System (CRIS) automated interfaces, including instructions on requesting and downloading the interfaces.
The table below contains links to the file specifications for each interface file.
