What to do if you're involved in a highway collision


  • Motor collisions are the #1 cause of fatalities of people between the ages of 15 and 29

  • If in a minor collision on the highway , if possible steer your vehicle to the shoulder so you are not blocking a lane

  • Exit the vehicle if possible and get behind the guard rail or as far away from the travel portion of the highway as possible

  • DO NOT cross live lanes of traffic

  • If unable to get to a safe location, do not exit your vehicle...you are safer to stay inside then try and cross live lanes of traffic

  • Risks such as fuel leaks, fire, or other vehicles approaching may be present after the collision occurs...BE AWARE

  • If attempting to stop to aid a collision, be very cautious of such dangers that may be present
