If you are involved in a Missouri motor vehicle accident on one of Missouri's highways, it is highly likely that the agency who will respond to the accident will be The Missouri State Highway Patrol.  If the Highway Patrol responds to your accident, did you know that you can obtain an almost instant preliminary traffic crash report online? The Missouri State Highway Patrol publishes preliminary traffic crash reports on their website, and those preliminary reports remain online for 29 days.  So if you have an accident and Highway Patrol responds, you can find out information about the other parties involved simply by visiting their website.  A complete accident report can be requested and will be available at a later time, but this website is very handy for getting the information you need to deal with the person who is at fault for the accident immediately, rather than having to wait for the official report to be ready.
