Lexington Police Accident Reports Now Available On The Internet

If you get into an accident on the roads in Lexington, it's now a lot easier to access information about your crash.

Police are now posting those accident reports online.

City officials call the new online program the first of a series of consumer service improvements to make the city more user friendly.

Lexington Police Chief Ronnie Bastin says the service is already receiving positive reviews.

Lexington is the first city in the state to offer such a service. But several other police departments around the country are also using it.

The service allows people involved in a crash to access their reports online. That saves the hassle of physically going downtown to police headquarters to get a paper copy of the report.

To access a report, all you need is your collision report number, the date of the report, and the name of the vehicle owner.

With so much personal information on the reports, police say they're also taking steps to keep it from falling into the hands of identity thieves.
