EDR Report After Accident - Cable?

Anyone in the DMV area have access to the proprietary cable to pull the EDR report? Small fender bender where a car cut into my lane (me:center, other driver: right-lane). Curious to see what the report covers.

Driver claims I "rear-ended" him but he of course leaves out the info that he changed lanes suddenly without adequate space. He yanked the wheel close enough and fast enough not to trigger the AEB or FCW (I always ride with it set to early).

Rubbed my passenger side front bumper and center impact of Tesla emblem with his far left-most rear tailgate corner. See Pictures:
I unfortunately don't have a dashcam. The black box should provide some of the vehicle specific details. I don't think the report from traffic awareness is included though.

Proof of a lane change by his vehicle would be beneficial. It's almost impossible to have the damage reflected on both vehicles any other way.
Do you have the dashcam footage?
