The Illinois State Police is launching a Civilian Crash Reporting System, or C-C-R-S.

The agency says it allows the public to create a crash report online without having to wait roadside for a Trooper to respond.

The C-C-R-S is designed to increase public safety since individuals can report their crash from a safe location and allow Troopers to serve the public more efficiently by freeing them to respond to higher priority calls for service.

Individuals can complete their own crash report online if the crash is a single vehicle, property-damage-only crash where there were no injuries to anyone involved, and it occurred on either an Interstate or a U.S. or Illinois Route. Drivers involved in a multiple vehicle crash or when there are injuries will not be able to complete a report online.
