Late report crashes are generally the result of relatively minor traffic crashes where the damage is believed to be less than the minimum reporting threshold and it later turns out to be more than estimated. Also, a driver from a previously reported and identified non-reportable crash may later obtain a damage estimate at or above the threshold level. In these situations each driver will be directed to complete a self-reporting accident form on the WI DOT website.
