TN residents can now purchase accident reports online
A partnership between the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security and Appriss, Inc., will allow citizens the ability to buy traffic crash reports from law enforcement agencies across the state.
Starting today, collision reports will be available for purchase online through the secure website www.tnbuycrash.com.
Tennessee is one of five states to work with Appriss in offering the crash report service. Florida, Georgia, Indiana and Kentucky also make crash reports available to the public online.
Tennessee Integrated Traffic Analysis Network (TITAN) is a database developed for the electronic collection, submission, and management of all traffic safety related data in the state.
Accidents investigated by the Tennessee Highway Patrol and local police and sheriff departments should be available online within seven days of the crash. The cost of an online collision report is $10.
Local THP district offices or law enforcement agencies are still able to sell crash reports or request a copied be sent through U.S. mail for $4.
The additional cost for the online crash reports are based on convenience fees which support the TITAN technology. The addition fee for this service was approved by the Tennessee General Assembly.
Citizens may access online crash reports by visiting www.tn.gov/safety or www.tnbuycrash.com.
