I was in a car accident in a rental car with 2 others

Customer Question
Hi!I was in a car...
Hi!I was in a car accident in a rental car with 2 others people, nobody was hurt, but the driver was unauthorized. We got scared and said it was an authorized driver who was at the wheels during the accident...
We realized that the insurance of this authorized driver is not working going to work with the rental car.
So now that we put ourselves in this bad situation, we are wondering what is the best course of action for us ?

I want to make sure I understand... you told the police or the insurance company that someone was driving who actually wasn't?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
