Vacation Ideas: Keep Your Cool When on the Road
• Move your vehicle out of the roadway, if you can. If your car is able to be driven, move it off of the road a safe distance. By getting off the road, you can help to avoid a second collision.
• Turn on your flashers or your lights. You want to be certain your vehicle is visible to other drivers.
• Check yourself and your passengers for injuries. If someone is injured, call 911 immediately.
• Call local police to report the crash.
• Call your insurance company to report the crash. The earlier your insurance company knows about the crash, the faster it can get to work to resolve your claim.

• Start documenting what happened, if you can. If you're able to do so safely, take photographs, make notes, ask witnesses for names and phone numbers. If you're not able to do so safely, stand as far from the roadway- and the crashed cars-as you possibly can.
• Exchange only your insurance company name. Don't discuss the details of your coverage with anyone at the accident scene.
• Exchange vital information with the other driver(s). Names, addresses, phone numbers are all useful to your insurance company in settling the claim.
