    Default Car accident, with no police report

    Hello, everyone

    I would really appreciate some help in this matter as it's urgent.

    Earlier yesterday, I was on my way to my college and I spaced off and hit the car in front of me (which hit the car in front of it). We were all going less than 5mph.

    The car in front of me was an old Toyota truck and the car infront of it was a ~2000 Toyota van. Both cars got really small dents on them.

    I suggested we call the police and file a report but the other drivers said "no, this is no big deal, lets not get the police involved."

    Later that day, I get a call from the owner of one of the vehicles (the van, owned by the driver's mother) and she requests my insurance information. I refused to give her the information and told her I'm not obligated to do so.

    My questions is: can she do anything without a police report? Can her insurance company do anything about it (given my Name and phone number only)?

    I understand it was my fault but they both agreed to not get the police involved.

    I would really appreciate some help on this!! Thanks a lot!!

    If they wish, they can go to the police and make a report.

    Thanks for the reply,

    When they file the report, who will be there to make sure the information is correct? The van was hit from the back before the accident, the accident only added a small dent (about 1.5 inches). Won't they need all drivers to be there when the report is filed?

    Thanks

    If their report is accepted, the police will likely then contact you for your version of events. If you are worried about getting your version onto the record first, you are free to make a report yourself.
