Car Crash Records Now Available Online in South Dakota

South Dakotans wanting to get copies of car crash reports can now find those records online.

The state Department of Public safety says the new online system for state-reportable crash records has gone live.

The new system allows users to search the state database for crash records. There is a flat $10 fee to purchase each record online.

Crash records are typically sought by insurance companies, law firms and individuals involved in state-reportable vehicle crashes. A state-reportable crash is currently for those resulting in $1,000 of damage per vehicle or more than $2,000 in damage for all of the vehicles involved.

Those limits will increase later this year.
