Accidents - Traffic

Keep the following in mind if you're involved in a traffic accident:

  • Check for immediate hazards, such as fire, electrical wires down or leaking fuel. Check for injuries. Call police and advise them on injuries. Do not move vehicles unless your vehicle is likely to cause more crashes and your crash is minor. Exchange driver and vehicle information and verify license plate numbers and driver license data. Obtain the full name of the other operator's insurance company. Obtain the name(s) and phone number(s) of witnesses. Leaving an accident scene may result in loss of driving privileges and future insurability.
