CRC (Collision Reporting Centers)

You have been involved in an automobile accident and find yourself at a Collision Reporting Center. The entire system is new to you, and you wonder what to do next. The following is a brief explanation of the Collision Report facility, why you are here and what you can expect.

What is a CRC?

A Collision Reporting Center is a Police facility created to assist motorists in reporting motor vehicle collisions. This facility has been set up for the following reasons:

  1. To facilitate an efficient way of reporting your automobile accident to the police.
  2. To eliminate lengthy, often dangerous waiting periods at the accident scene.
  3. To allow OPP and Metro police to better allocate their resources to serve the public at no cost to the police or tax payers. No fees are charged to police or motorists. All expenses are paid by Ontario’s insurers.

Filing a police report

  1. Your vehicle will be inspected and a sticker will be applied to the damaged area of your vehicle.
  2. You will then be given a self-report form to complete.
  3. The police will request your driver’s licence, vehicle ownership, and insurance liability card. Please have these available.

The damage reported sticker indicates that the damage has been reported to police. It should not be remove until the damage is reported to your insurance company and repaired. This sticker provides a means to assist the police in identifying and controlling the more than 15,000 hit and run drivers each year in Metro Toronto.

  1. If it is safe to do so, remove vehicles from roadway.
  2. Exchange info with the other involved parties. (Names, drivers licence #, addresses, phone numbers, insurance and vehicle particulars).
  3. If any, obtain names and phone numbers of independent witnesses.
  4. Forthwith, attend with your vehicle at the CRC most convenient to you. 
  5. Bring your documentation with you to the CRC (Driver’s licence, ownership and insurance etc.).
