The LA eCrash software system is Louisiana's official state-wide solution to electronically capture motor vehicle accident reporting information. Crash reports generated through it are quick, accurate, secure, and legible.
The LA eCrash system provides full-scale consistency and fewer interpretation errors in crash data. Officers can enter accident reporting information using a laptop in their patrol car or a desktop computer in their office. The electronic submission of the data helps to collect traffic crash reporting information in a more timely manner.
