HelloThis is Samuel. The Driving While Suspended is a criminal charge. Regardless of the accident that will stand separate and apart and DWS is a misdemeanor crime in Ohio. For a misdemeanor (driving under suspension) it would be 2 years to file charges.It has nothing to do with the accident, other then had it not been for the accident he might still be driving un noticed of the violation. And so because the SOL to make the charge is 2 years, it can be issued at anytime within that 2 year time frame allotted by law to file the criminal charge.As to the accident report the insurance company can provide you with that copy. Though they generally do not release it until after they have taken a statement from the drivers. But check with them about getting that copy.
I wish it was better news for you on the criminal citation. If you have other questions, please let me know here.
