1) Call the proper authorities.

3) Exchange info. Get insurance info, people’s addresses and names. Take pictures of the scene.
4a) If in the woods, like an ATV or snowmobile accident, get approval from the proper authority to move the vehicle from the scene.
4b) If on the lake, in the case of a boat or PWC, get approval from the proper authority to move the vehicle from the scene.
5) Call your Insurance Agent to discuss your options.
