  3. Exchange information with every driver involved in the accident (including insurance, driver's license numbers, phone numbers, and addresses).
  4. If a commercial vehicle was involved, document the registration numbers on the trailer and cab. Also, find out who owns the vehicle.
  5. Get contact information from any witnesses.
  6. If you have a camera with you or a cell phone camera, take photographs to document the accident site, weather and road conditions, and the extent of damage. You may be able to take video with some cameras and cell phones.
  7. Ask the responding officer where you can get a copy of the official accident report.
