Had An Accident in the Durham Region?

If you have been in a car accident, the first step you must take is ensuring the safety of yourself, passengers and bystanders by contacting the proper authorities. If there are no injuries or property damage, you may be able to contact a Collision Reporting Centre. A CRC is a police facility that was created to assist motorists in reporting accidents and collisions throughout the GTA.


Please note: The Highway Traffic Act requires all accidents in which there are injuries, damage over $1000.00 or damage to any highway property to be reported to police.

Contacting a Collision Reporting Centre

Before contacting a CRC, you should take the following steps:

  • Check the "exception list" to ensure the police are not required
  • If it is safe to do so, remove vehicles from the roadway
  • Exchange information with the other involved parties, including independent witnesses (names, addresses, phone numbers, insurance and vehicle information)
  • As soon as possible, bring your vehicle to the CRC servicing the police district in which the accident occurred
  • Bring your documentation with you to the CRC, including your driver's licence, proof of ownership and insurance
