Accident Report

You must file an Oregon Traffic Accident and Insurance Report (Form 32) with DMV within 72 hours when:

  • Damage to the vehicle you were driving is over $1,500;
  • Damage to any vehicle is over $1,500 and any vehicle is towed from the scene as a result of damages from this accident;
  • Injury or death resulted from this accident; or
  • Damages to any one person’s property other than a vehicle involved in this accident is over $1,500.

Accidents in areas open to the public for the use of motor vehicles must be reported. Some drivers who are in accidents offer to fix the damage and try to get the other driver not to file a report. If you agree to do this, you are breaking the law if the amount of damage is more than $1,500. Always remember to keep a copy of your report for your own records.

You must file a report even if your vehicle was the only one in the crash. If you do not report an accident when required to do so, your driving privileges will be suspended.

If you were in a collision and the other party did not have insurance, you can report the collision to DMV. However, the accident may also go on your driving record, if you do not clearly indicate on the accident report that the accident does not meet mandatory reporting criteria.

Visit the DMV website to download and print the Accident Report Form.

You do NOT have to stand in line at DMV to turn this in! Just fill it out completely, and mail it to:

Thank you for making an unpleasant situation tolerable. We appreciate your clear communication & assistance. The 4 runner was so clean & looked so good, before I drove it, that I was delighted. Thanks.

The minute I told my insurance that I wanted Lents to repair my car they said "GOOD - they are the best to work with - they also have a GREEN shop"

I am so pleased about that and I also think you're the best!" Thanks Again

-Carolyn H.
Quick note to say thank you so much for the fine work on my car -- it's beautiful! The detailing was beyond what I was thinking (a surprise!) Thank you so much.

-Linda M.
I want to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff for the outstanding work you performed on my 2003 Suzuki XL-7. When my car was returned to me it looked brand new and even my mechanic said did not look like the car had ever been in an accident.

Thank you for your excellent customer services and exceptional work!

-Keith J.
