What do I need to do if I am in a motor vehicle crash?
You are only required to notify the police if there is an injury related to the crash, or if public property has been damaged. Crashes that result in property damage only can be handled by the drivers exchanging insurance information. If for any reason you would like an officer to respond to your motor vehicle crash, please call 911 or 651-322-2323 and an officer will respond to assist you.


If the crash has resulted in an injury or in $1,000 combined damage for all vehicles involved, the drivers involved are required to complete a State of Minnesota Accident Report. This requirement is in place regardless of whether an officer responded to the crash scene or not. You may obtain the form from the Department of Public Safety website.
