Exchange contact and insurance information with the other person involved in the accident if possible. Never leave the scene of an accident that you are involved in. Wait until a police officer arrives and writes a thorough report. If you leave the scene of an accident before a police report is written, your insurance company will have no way of knowing who was at fault for the accident. This could result in you being held responsible for the damages on your vehicle as well as the other person’s vehicle. If your vehicle has to be towed, make sure it is towed to the quality shop of your choosing.
