TxDOT has an automated process for requesting and receiving raw crash data in the form of comma separated value (CSV) extract files. These files include crash data collected in TxDOT’s Crash Records Information System (CRIS) from the Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report (form CR-3) from Jan. 1, 2011, to present. There are two file types available.
The CRIS Automated Interface Guide provides instructions on how to register and receive the extract files.
The extract specification files below contain all of the data fields that are included in each type of
extract file, along with their codes and effective beginning and end dates.
