Here is what you must do if you are involved in an auto collision:
First, just stop. Check for damage and injuries. Leaving the scene can be an offence.
Call the police if:
Any of the vehicles is not drivable.
Someone is impaired.
A driver doesn’t have proper documents.
The vehicle damage is serious – over $2,000 combined.
If someone is injured, call 9-1-1. Leave the vehicles where they are. Step away from the road and traffic.
Even for damage under $2,000, exchange driver information. Take photos and witness accounts if possible.
For insurance and legal protection:
Don’t admit fault right away.
Don’t offer to pay for damages or accept money.
Don’t argue with the police or the other driver.
File a collision report with the police if combined damage is over $2,000.
