A Florida crash report is officially titled as ‘HSMV 90010S’. The Florida Traffic Crash Report (HSMV 90010S) is used by state highway patrol and law enforcement officers to report traffic accidents to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV). The details in the crash report are recorded by the officer who attended the scene of the accident. If a police officer did not attend your accident, you have the option to self-file a Driver Self Report of Traffic Crash (form 90011S) online or by mail.

The Florida Traffic Crash Report

There is both a long form (HSMV 90010S) and a short form (HSMV 90010S) for Florida crash reports. A Long Form report (HSMV 90010S) in its entirety must include a Narrative/Diagram when the following criteria are met: (1) Resulted in death of, personal injury to, or any indication of complaints of pain or discomfort by any of the parties or passengers involved in the crash (2) Leaving the scene involving damage to attended vehicles or property (F.S. 316.061(1)) (3) Driving while under the influence (F.S. 316.193) (4) Rendered a vehicle inoperable to a degree that required a wrecker to remove it from the scene of the crash (5) Involved a commercial motor vehicle.

The Short Form (HSMV 90010S) designation is used to report other types of traffic crashes. If form HSMV 90010S is used as a Short Form Report, diagrams and narratives are not required, otherwise, a Long and Short Form Report have the same requirements. Understanding how to read your accident report or even knowing what information to put into it can be complicated and confusing. The following documents can help provide a comprehensive guide:
