Vehicle Accident Reporting

All motor vehicle accidents involving a State-owned vehicle or any vehicle being used on State business must be reported on the Vehicle Accident Report (STD 270) form within 48 hours to the State Office of Risk and Insurance Management (ORIM).  if the accident result in bodily injury or significant property damage, the accident must be reported by telephone and/or fax of the STD 270 to the ORIM fax phone number at (916) 376-5277.  The ORIM website (link:  http://www.documents.dgs.ca.gov/dgs/fmc/pdf/std270.pdf) allows individuals to download a copy of the STD 270 Vehicle Accident Report form.

The supervisor of each driver involved in an accident must prepare a State Driver Accident Review form STD 274 to investigate the accident promptly and thoroughly.  The supervisor must initiate any verbal or written corrective action; record the action, and forward copies of the completed form to the appropriate campus administration (CSUN Office of Safety and Risk Management).  The purpose of this report is to determine whether the accident was avoidable and to aid in the prevention of future accidents.  This State Driver Accident Review (STD 274) must be submitted with the Vehicle Accident Report (STD 270) filed with the State Office of Risk and Insurance Management (ORIM) as well as your Campus Risk Manager.
