Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
You need to contact the police, locate the officer handling the report, and provide that information to the officer.
The police will amend or supplement the report and will likely charge the other driver.
You should also contact your insurance company and apprise them of the situation so that you are compliant with your contract (which usually requires that you inform them at the earliest opportunity of a potential claim).
