TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Collision Reporting Center is open to help drivers with minor or non-injury crashes.

The center is located at the Patrick K. Hardesty Midtown Multi-Service Center, 1100 South Alvernon Way, Tucson, AZ, 85711. It will be open six days a week, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. 

It will be Arizona’s first reporting center and only the second in the U.S., with the other in Virginia.

The drivers can bring their car to the center, where the employees will take a statement from both parties involved. They will also take pictures of the cars involved. They will combine all that information and send it to the insurance companies.

This program will be for crashes that happen in the City of Tucson and is a free service for the drivers.

This will also help out Tucson police. They stopped responding to these type of crashes in 2011. The same information that is sent to the insurance companies will also be sent to TPD. They will use that data to help with traffic in problem areas, they could even consider adding traffic enforcement to area if there is a need.

Accident Support Services International says, they have invested $3 million into this program. So there is no cost for the city to have the program here.

The first six months of the program will be a trial period.

So far the company has five employees working in Tucson. They say it will take between 25 to 45 minutes to complete the report.

    Based on statements from the driver and witnesses, as well as roadway evidence, it does not appear that speed was a contributing factor in the collision. It is uncertain at this time if impairment was a factor.
