Reports on accidents investigated by the Mississippi Highway Patrol can be purchased over the Internet.

Public Safety Commissioner Albert Santa Cruz says the system underwent several weeks of testing and went live April 2. He says the records are accessible with the case identification number or using other criteria.

The records may be downloaded from www.reportbeam.com. Select the public access option and follow the prompts. The fees will be
transmitted with a credit/debit card through a secure portal.

According to state law, accident reports can only be accessed by
the crash victim, the victim's family or the victim's representative.

Violators can be fined up to $2,500 and/or six months in jail.
