After the Accident
You must stop your vehicle immediately following the accident. If possible, park it off the road.
If someone has been injured, call for emergency help right away. Do what you can to make sure that the injured are as comfortable as possible, but don't move anyone unless there's immediate danger―you could do more harm than good.
If only property damage is involved, you don't have to call the police. If property damage occurs to something other than a vehicle, you're required to pass along your appropriate information to the owner of the property.
Give your name, address, birth date, and vehicle registration number to the other driver(s) and to the police. If anyone involved in the accident asks to see your driver's license, or for the name and address of your insurance company and the name of your agent, you must comply.
Present your insurance information to the police, if they ask to see it.Other Topics in This Section
