If a Crash Occurs

If there has been an injury, call emergency services for help. Do not leave the scene of a crash until all matters have been taken care of.

Move the vehicle only if its position puts you in danger, or you are instructed to move it by a police officer.

Give only the necessary information to police and other parties involved in the crash.

• Driver name, address, and telephone number.
• Driver license number.
• Owner name, address, and telephone number.
• Vehicle license plate number.
• Vehicle make, model, and model year.
• Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
• Insurance company and policy number.
• General description of the damage to the other vehicle.
