A: In Oklahoma, if a child who is under the care of a foster family is involved in an auto accident, the parent who still retains parental rights may have the legal right to obtain the accident report. Typically, parents have the right to access information related to their child's well-being and safety, including records and reports pertaining to accidents or incidents involving their child. However, child welfare and custody laws can be complex, and the specific circumstances of the case can impact how this information is shared.
