Noting the direction of the other car.

If possible, make a mental note of the direction the driver took as he sped away. If you can see which street he takes, you may be able to help police follow his path.

Even if the accident is not a hit-and-run, there are important steps to take after the crash, including:

  • Calling the police immediately
  • Taking photos and videos of the scene
  • Speaking to witnesses
  • Writing down any important details
  • Calling for medical attention, if necessary
