Accident Reports for Citizens
If you have been involved in a traffic collision and did not report it to the police, you should report it to the State of Texas using the CR-2 "driver's crash report." Generally, if you left the scene of an accident, there is no investigation for the police to conduct and they will not file a report for you after the fact. If your insurance company tells you that you need a police report to file your claim, you will have to use the CR-2 which is on the TxDOT web-site linked above.
