You can request copies of Motor Vehicle Accident Reports by visiting the Mechanicville Police Department in person, email, faxing or mailing a request to the Mechanicville Police Department Records Unit. Once your request has been received you will be contacted by the Records Unit staff.
There is a $5.00 fee for all accident reports unless they are picked up in person.
If the property damage of any person is $1,001 or more, all
the involved drivers are required by the NY State Vehicle and Traffic Law to file a Report of Motor Vehicle Accident (MV-104). File form MV-104 with the DMV no more than 10 days after the accident. The DMV can suspend your driver license if you fail to report an accident.
If a person is injured or killed, you are required by the NY State Vehicle and Traffic Law to immediately notify the police. All
the involved drivers and the police must file an accident report with the DMV. It is a crime to leave the scene of an accident that causes personal injury or death.
For your convenience a civilian accident report (DMV 104) can be found here if you still need to file one.
