Basic Information

If possible, it is much easier to obtain your Columbus Accident Report if you have some basic information. Before you begin this process, it is advisable to collect the following information:

  1. The date of the car accident; and
  2. The location of the car accident; and
  3. The names of the involved parties.

What is the Cost of a Car Accident Report in Columbus, Ohio?

Many Ohio cities charge for accident reports, but Columbus does not follow this trend for electronic copies. Columbus is a bit unique, however, in that the Columbus Division of Police submits all crash reports to the Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS). Once they have been submitted, ODPS makes these reports available on their website. However, if you would like a hard copy of a report, the cost is 5 cents per page.
