I was involved in a traffic accident and left the scene. Can I still make a report?
A police investigation cannot be completed as the vehicles and accident scene are gone. Accidents in which the drivers leave the scene are primarily a civil matter of financial liability. However, if you exchanged information with the other driver(s) and later found the information you were given was false, we might want to have an officer speak with you.
If you need a report for insurance purposes or another reason, a cold accident report can be completed. This report indicates that no investigation was completed. In order to complete a cold accident report, you will need to come to the Loveland Police Department Records Section and complete the form.
Please note that the announcement of an accident alert made in Larimer County does not pertain to accidents occurring within the jurisdiction of the Loveland Police Department.
