Drivers involved in minor accidents should move vehicles to the side of the road and out of the way of oncoming traffic or busy intersections. Make sure hazard warning signals are on, turn engine off contact police.
Prior to arrival of police operators can exchange the following information: name, address, phone number, insurance information, policy number, driver license number and license plate number for the driver and the owner of each vehicle. If the driver’s name is different from the name on the owners’ card or insurance information establish what the relationship to the owner is. Make sure you get the names of other passengers in the vehicle.
Make a written description of each car, including year, make, model and color. List the exact location (street names) and if possible photograph and document the accident. Photograph damage to all vehicles including intersections and cross streets.
