  • If any, obtain names and phone numbers of independent witnesses.
  • Attend with your vehicle at the CRC in the area which your accident happened. You must call police when accident happens.

BRING YOUR DOCUMENTATION with you to the CRC (Driver’s licence, ownership and insurance etc.)

DOES THE CRC TAKE “FAIL TO REMAIN” COLLISION REPORTS?  Yes- The CRC will take reports of fail to remain collisions involving damage to property but not personal injury. A police unit will be dispatched if the suspect vehicle is still in the area of the collision.

  • Collisions involving vehicles transporting dangerous goods.

WITHOUT EXCEPTION, TOWED VEHICLES MUST GO DIRECTLY TO THE CRC FROM THE COLLISION LOCATION.
