If any person at the accident scene was been injured get medical help as quickly as possible. If it could be too much of a danger to move your vehicle, exit your vehicle as fast as you can and get to a safer location like either side of the road which is a safe distance from the scene of the accident.

2. Police: Always make sure to call the appropriate law enforcement agency for help. If you are not sure, call 911 and ask for help after reporting the accident.
