Don't run. This seems to be many people's first impulse, but it is against the law to leave the scene of any accident. Check for injuries. If someone is injured, notify the police. Life and health are more important than damage to vehicles. Check the vehicle. Make note of specific damages to all the vehicles involved. Exchange information. It is important to write down the name, address and license number of persons involved in the accident. Also, write a description of the other vehicles. Look for witnesses. Jot down the names and addresses of anyone who may have witnessed the accident. This may prevent disagreement concerning how the accident actually occurred.
