Customer Question

I just ran into a fire hydrant which was in the road because of a car accident I was not involved in. I called 911 and reported the fire hydrant and while on the call a police cruiser arrived on scene.He told me to wait while he attended to the actual car accident. I drove away because I don't have car insurance and didn't want to have that come out when the officer got back to me.Do I have a problem?
