If you have a traffic accident, you must:
Stop at Once
Stop at the accident scene or as close as possible without blocking or endangering other traffic. "Hit and run" is a serious crime. Conviction will mean your driving privileges will be revoked or suspended.
Give aid to injured people. Remember, injured people should never be moved carelessly. In many cases, they should not be moved at all except by emergency staff or someone trained in first aid. If someone is killed or unconscious, the driver must remain at the scene until a police officer arrives. If you don’t, you are guilty of "hit and run."
Exchange Information (printable checklist to keep in your car)
Give the other driver, passengers in the vehicle, or any injured pedestrian your:
- Driver license number;
- License plate number; and
- Your insurance information.
Report the Accident to DMV (instructions above)
