- If no one is injured, and your vehicle is drivable, exchange the following information with each other:
- Driver's name
- Driver's address
- Driver's phone number(s)
- Make and model of vehicle
- Vehicle License Plate Number
- Insurance company and policy number
- Take pictures of each vehicle involved in the crash as this will help your insurance companies (this is not required)
