Austin is a progressive and thriving metropolitan area. It should surprise no one, then, to realize that it has its fair share of vehicle collisions on a regular basis. In some cases, no police intervention is required. These are dubbed as ‘blue crashes’ and typically are accidents in which there are no injuries, all vehicles are able to be driven from the scene and do not require a tow, every driver has proper licensure and insurance forms and can access the ‘blue form’ for purposes of reporting.

 

A second type of collision recognized by the Austin Highway Patrol is the Crash HS (Hot Shot). In these accidents serious injuries or fatalities are anticipated such as with a rollover crash, head-on collision or similar potentially deadly circumstances. If the vehicles have been pulled out of the way of traffic then it is no longer considered a Hot Shot call.

 

Traffic impediments are those incidents that occur on secondary roads – and while they may impede traffic – are not cause for immediate police response. An example of this could be a railroad crossing arm that is stuck in a lowered position.

 

There are a number of conditions which will result in the accident being classified as Crash Urgent. Accidents involving a minor and/or accidents that include city vehicles fall under this heading. Traffic Hazards are varied – and run the gamut of stalled vehicles on roadways, debris and traffic light malfunctions. They share the commonality that they all have the potential to wreak traffic havoc.

 

The Austin PD and Highway Patrol have an efficient and streamlined system for handling traffic problems and both serious and minor Austin car accident cases.
