Plan makes crash reports handy
TEWKSBURY -- The Tewksbury Police Department and Carfax have partnered to make it easier for citizens to access crash reports. Instead of calling or heading to the police station, those involved in an accident can obtain electronic copies of their crash report by visiting www.crashdocs.org or www.tewksbury-ma.gov/police-department . By entering the date of the accident and their name, those involved in accidents can retrieve their accident reports more quickly and at any time. With the partnership, police will also have access to Carfax investigative resources to help the department close more cases.
