Collision Reports

No one wants to be involved in a traffic collision.

However, if you are involved in one, call 9-1-1 for a police response.

If your collision is NOT investigated by a police officer or sheriff’s deputy, AND if there are injuries or the total damages exceeds $700.00, you need to complete a State of Washington Vehicle Collision Report within 24 hours. 

Report forms are available at all King County Sheriff’s Office locations, from any other police station and online.

NOTE: Visit the Washington State Police website for the State Vehicle Collision Report form.

Remember: If the police complete a written report, you will only need to contact your insurance company.

If you are seeking a copy of a police report regarding a traffic collision that you were involved in, you can contact KCSO Records at (206) 296-4190 or request a copy online

You will be asked to provide specific information, such as a case number, or (if you do not have a case number), information such as the date and time of the accident, the location and names of individuals involved. 

Copies of reports may not be available until two weeks after the accident has occurred.

Reminder: If you are making an online records request for a traffic collision, please remember that the City of Sammamish contracts its Police Services with the King County Sheriff’s Office. Thus, you will need to select KCSO as the agency that completed the report.
