Collision Investigations

The City of Carlsbad Police Department documents all traffic collisions occurring on public roadways except for minor “fender benders.” The Police Department need not respond if all involved parties agree on the minor nature of the collision, have exchanged driver and insurance information, and all vehicles can be driven from the scene under their own power.

The traffic division is responsible for investigating serious and fatal injury collisions. The traffic division also reviews all hit and run collisions and provides follow-up when suspect information is available.
