Reporting a Traffic Accident

​​What to do in a Traffic Collision

  • ​First attend to the medical needs of anyone involved. Call 911 if necessary-but remember that 911 is for emergencies only.
  • When there are no injuries, move your vehicle out of traffic to the nearest place of safety.

  • Call Ukiah PD Dispatch, 707-463-6262.

  • Exchange driver license, vehicle registration, and insurance information with the other driver or drivers.

  • Do not accept or place any blame. Your insurance company has people trained to determine who is at fault.

  • Gather contact information from possible witnesses.

  • Take a moment to write down details of the collision, such as time of day, traffic conditions, weather conditions, and the events that led up to the collision.
