LATE Accident reports: The police department doesn’t investigate accidents after the fact. Had a minor accident, exchanged information with the other driver, need a report for insurance purposes? We have a form you can complete. The late accident form allows you to report the accident, provide the necessary information and get it assigned a case number. Call the main number (203) 453-8061 to see if your accident qualifies for a “Late Accident Report Form“
