  • If possible, move your vehicle out of traffic to a safe parking area
  • Turn on emergency flashers and use any safety equipment available
  • Call 911 to report the collision
  • Be sure to exchange driver’s license, insurance and vehicle information with the other driver
  • Take pictures of the other vehicle’s license plate as a precaution.
