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.

For emergency towing see Roadside Service (U.S. and Canada) or Roadside Service (Mexico).

- 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.
