When to report a crash
This report is not designed to replace law enforcement investigations when needed in certain crashes. If you believe law enforcement should be involved in your crash, please contact your local law enforcement agency for assistance. If law enforcement is called to the crash, then law enforcement may complete the report. If law enforcement does not file the report and the crash occurred in 2017, you will need to complete the Wisconsin Driver Report of Crash DT4002.
Per Wisconsin Statute 346.70(1), any crash within the State of Wisconsin must be reported when it results in:
- Injury of a person
- $1,000 or more damage to any person’s vehicle or property
- Damage of $200 or more to state or other government-owned property other than a vehicle
If you received a letter from the Department of Transportation stating you were involved in a reportable crash and requesting you to complete a report, you must complete a crash report.
How to report a crash
Information you need before starting your crash report:
- Driver license number
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
- Social security number
- Vehicle insurance information
If any motorist involved in a crash/accident is uninsured additional forms will need to be completed under the safety responsibility law.
