New Accident Procedure From Lubbock Police

(Lubbock) From the Lubbock Police Dept.

Hey, Hub City! We want to talk to you about changes coming to the City of Lubbock in our response to traffic crashes. Beginning January 1, 2024, to reduce the number of calls for service and respond to higher priority calls more quickly, we will adjust the call response to certain traffic crashes. So, what does this mean? If you are involved in a minor traffic crash with no injuries, involved parties will exchange and complete a CR-2 or Blue Form in lieu of waiting for an officer to respond. A CR-2, or Blue Form, is a Driver’s Crash Report completed by persons involved in the traffic crash. The CR-2 is available on the LPD website, all three Division Stations and at the LPD Headquarters.
The Texas Transportation Code requires drivers to meet the following requirements, but all of these are met when a driver completes a CR-2, so don’t feel overwhelmed.
If an operator of a vehicle is involved in a collision with a vehicle that is driven or attended, they shall provide to the other involved parties: · Name · Address · Registration Number (License Plate Number)
Name of Motor Vehicle Liability Insurer If an operator of a vehicle is involved a collision with a vehicle that is unattended, they shall: · Locate the operator or owner of the unattended vehicle provide name and address of the operator and the owner of the vehicle that struck the unattended vehicle · OR leave in a conspicuous place in, or securely attach in a plainly visible way to, the unattended vehicle a written notice giving the name and address of the operator and the owner of the vehicle that struck the unattended vehicle and a statement of the circumstances of the collision.
If an operator of a vehicle is involved a collision with a structure, fixture or highway landscaping, they shall: · Take reasonable steps to locate and notify the owner or person in charge of the property involved in the collision and of the operator’s name, address and the registration number of the vehicle the operator was driving · If requested and available, show the operator’s driver’s license to the owner or person in charge of the property WATCH the video for the details on the types of crashes that will and will not require a CR-2 Form.
