The police have to give you a copy, if you ask, of the police report of the incident. The info of both parties involved have to be on that report. If you file any insurance claim as a result of the incident, then they would be required to give your insurance company a copy of the report. Since you went down, it's a traffic accident. File an accident report and you can get the info.
If the police still refuse, check on filing and accident report with the DMV.
Although it doesn't meet the requirements, they still might take the report.
If you have even a scratch from road rash, then you can file this report. Be truthful, don't embellish, and find out if you can get a copy with the info of both parties on it.
