Accident Reporting Procedure

Even the most careful driver may at some time be involved in an auto accident. Knowledge of what to do after the accident can make the experience a little less frightening and decrease the chance of unnecessary complications.

  • Safely stop and turn the vehicle off.  Call 9-1-1 and follow their instructions.
  • If there are no serious physical injuries or fatalities and the vehicle is safely movable, remove the vehicle from the main traveled portion of the road onto the shoulder, emergency lane, median or other safe refuge.
  • Refer to the ADOT accident packet located in the glove box.
  • Reduce hazards to other motorists by placing flags, cones, etc. (Mark the area to warn oncoming motorist.)
  • Notify your supervisor.

  • DO NOT:

    1.   COMMENT ON WHO WAS AT FAULT.
    2.   ARGUE WITH OTHER DRIVERS OR POLICE.
    3.   DISCUSS THE ACCIDENT WITH ANYONE EXCEPT LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES     
          OR REPRESENTATIVES OF STATE RISK MANAGEMENT.
