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.

- Driver name, address, and telephone number.

- Owner name, address, and telephone number.

- Vehicle license plate number.

- Vehicle make, model, and model year.

- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
