Accident Reports

Is there a centralized reporting agency for RV accidents & incidents like the NTSB does for commercial stuff? How would someone find out the cause of a reported accident?

The federal government takes reports at:

Home | National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

Each state also usually investigates and tallies accidents.

Don't know if any publicly displays cause of the accident.

There seems to be a decided lack of specific information regarding RV accidents. It appears they are grouped with cars.

The only way I know of is to obtain a copy of the accident report from the investigating police agency.. now if you know when, where and who, you can send a few dollars (Amount depends on agency) and depending on the agency policy (Some only release to insurance or party involved) they will give you a copy.. Then you need to know how to read it... Some of them can be a bit..er..cryptic.

(Last one I seriously looked at involved my daughter.. If you want to know what happened ask her cause her version differed from the investigator's report only in that the investigator used formal terms like "Vehicle #1 and Vehicle #2 where as my daughter used "The other guy" and I/Me (respectivelly) NOTE Vehicle #1 is traditionally the AT FAULT driver, and this was the case).
