- Follow normal procedures for contacting 911 in the event of any injuries
- Aid other drivers only in life-threatening situations while utilizing protective wear, such as a mask or gloves
- Document the scene and damage, taking photos of the involved vehicles to assess damage
Do not physically exchange insurance cards or any type of identification card. Instead, share any needed insurance and license information verbally or electronically, using smart phone apps, email or messaging.
You can also take photos of the required identification cards and send them to the other person, making sure to stay six feet apart at all times.
If your vehicle is non-operational after the collision, don't hitch a ride with the tow truck operator, as it's unlikely you'll be six feet apart inside the truck cab. Instead arrange for your own transportation wherever possible.
