The accident will show but it will be marked as a not At Fault accident and should not increase your insurance rates.

Typically, states keep driving records in only their state. However, this doesn't preclude someone from getting your driving record from Colorado. What your IL driving record would indicate is that you once help a license in Colorado (if you were driving under a Colorado license at the time. If you have an IL license and got the ticket in Colorado, then yes, it will show up on your record.)

How do you get accidents off your driving record?

You cannot remove them from your record in any way. Different insurance companies use different time limits in order to underwrite risks. Most insurance companies use the last 3 years in order to rate your insurance premiums. There are some companies that rate for the previous 5 years. These are the only two periods that I am aware of in rating. Time is the only factor that can help you with tickets and accidents. Tickets and accidents are actually never removed from your driving record but the rating period of the company determines how long they effect your rate.
