5. Make written notes of any statements made by the driver or occupants of the other vehicle as to how the accident occurred.

6. Get the name, address and phone numbers of the driver of the other vehicle. Copy the driver’s license number of that driver. Write down the license plate numbers of each vehicle involved. Exchange automobile insurance information with the other driver.

7. Get the names, addresses and telephone numbers of any witnesses.

8. If you believe the driver of the other vehicle may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol, tell this to the investigating police officer.
