I. Driver's Crash Report (Blue Form) - This report is completed by a driver involved in a traffic crash when the crash is not investigated by a law enforcement officer and apparent damage is $1,000 or more or when the crash resulted in injury or death. Visit the TXDOT website for more information.

Examples: Crashes with a high probability of serious injuries such as rollover, head-on, or very high rate of speed crashes. Collisions blocking High Speed Roadways. HSR (High Speed Roadways) are Interstates, US and State Highways to include frontage roads. Collisions on HSR that have been pulled to the shoulder and are no longer blocking are not a Hot Shot call.

III. Crash Service- Collisions that are not blocking or impeding traffic. Collisions having occurred on private property. Leaving the scene collisions where there are no injuries, lanes, blocked, or any parties chasing the other as a result of the collision.

IV. Crash Urgent- Collisions involving minor injuries and or where minor injuries are suspected. Collisions that are blocking secondary roadways (non-high speed). Collisions having occurred on a HSR (High Speed Roadway), but are no longer blocking (having pulled to the shoulder / parking lot)*See Crash Service*. Collisions involving city vehicles. Traffic Hazard Any traffic hazard on major thoroughfares that may cause a collision, injuries, or otherwise cause undue traffic congestion. For example: pedestrians, stalled vehicles, debris in the roadway, and / or inoperative traffic signals.

V. Traffic Impediment- Impediments located on minor roadways that do not pose an immediate hazardous situation; but if not addressed could cause future problems. For example: railroad arms stuck in the down position, stalled vehicles, and street parking issues that impede traffic.
