Followed by the Whitby Collision and Glass Repair Process.
Is Anyone Hurt?
Accidents can be very traumatic. In the event of a collision, first ensure that you or your passengers are not seriously injured. In the event of an emergency, call 911.
Do not Drive
Do not drive a damaged vehicle that cannot be operated safely. Clear traffic if possible, turn off ignition and leave lights or signals on if practical and safe.
Establish the driver or drivers of the vehicles involved in the collision immediately. Beware of individuals who attempt to flee the scene. This is a crime and report their license plate.
If possible, warn on coming traffic of the collision with flares or flagging.
In case of an emergency, call 911 to notify them of the accident and to send an ambulance. If it is not an emergency situation, you are still required to contact Police to notify them of the collision.
List the information that you will need to provide to your insurance agent and also about the other driver(s). You will need to provide proof of insurance to the other driver and police.
