DD Form 518, Accident - Identification Card, is a form filed by U.S. Army service members involved in any sort of traffic accident while driving government-owned vehicles. The service member must fill out a DD 518 in order to provide the other party involved in the mishap with their personal identifying information.
The latest version of the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DA Form 518 - was released by the Department of Defense (DoD) on October 1, 1978. An up-to-date fillable DD Form 518 is available for download and digital filing below or can be found through the Executive Services Directorate website.
A copy of the DoD Accident Identification Card is placed in each vehicle for the purposes provided above. When an Army vehicle is involved in a mishap, the driver provides the injured party with a properly filled-out form. All soldiers operating government-owned vehicles are responsible for reporting all accidents to military and local Law Enforcement, their immediate supervisor, and Vehicle Control Officer (VCO) for further investigation.
