- hospitalization because of injury
- an unlicensed driver or unregistered vehicle
- an unidentified vehicle (e.g., hit and run)
- you failed to get the other driver's particulars
- you suspect the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- a domestic animal and the owner could not be located
You must report these types of collisions to the police within seven days. Reports can be made in person at Police Headquarters, 245 Smith St.
