Louisiana State Police say the option of ordering crash photographs through its website is now available to the public.
The agency says such photos are available online at www.lsp.org . Once on the website, visitors should click on the LSP statewide crash reports and photos link for photographs and/or reports.
To order, the driver's or pedestrian's first and last name, parish of the crash, and date of the crash must be provided. Fatality photographs will not be available online.
Officials hope the new system, announced Thursday, will increase accessibility to crash photographs and streamline the purchasing process. Photographs can also be purchased by mail or phone through the LSP Photo Lab at 225-925-3518.
The cost for each photograph is $10.
