STATE POLICE ACCIDENT AND INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS

            ACCIDENT INFORMATION SUMMARY

An Accident Information Summary provides preliminary information regarding the parties involved in an accident, vehicles involved, insurance information and a brief summary of the accident. The summary is for informational purposes only and is not the official accident report. Accident Information Summaries are available to the parties involved in an accident on the DESPP Internet website.  Accident Information Summaries will be available for thirty (30) days from the date of the accident.  Connecticut General Statutes may restrict what information is provided in the summary. In cases where information is restricted, you may visit the State Police Troop in the area in which your accident occurred to obtain a copy of the Accident Information Summary.
