One of the first things that you need to do if you're in an accident is to contact the police. Even if someone has already contacted them, you still need to make a report. Stay with or inside your vehicle until help arrives instead of leaving as you could be charged for leaving the scene of an accident.

Report all of the details of what you remember about the accident. Take pictures of your car and any damage to property or other cars involved. Avoid telling the officer details that could be fictitious. If you don't remember something, then admit it to the officer.

While you're in Fresno, CA, give your insurance information to the officer so that the proper report can be made and the proper payments can be issued if the accident was your fault. Damages can often be repaired at Lithia Subaru of Fresno, or you can discuss listing your vehicle as totaled and getting a new vehicle to drive.
