Accident Information

The following procedures should be followed if you are driving a vehicle for state/university business and are involved in an accident. The same procedure applies if you are driving your personal or an Enterprise vehicle for state/university business.

At time of Accident

  • Stop Immediately and turn on emergency flashers.
  • Do not leave the scene of the accident. Notify or have someone contact the local law enforcement.
  • Give reasonable help to the injured. Movement of an injured person should not be undertaken if likely to cause further injury.

Immediately after Accident

All Accidents Must Be Reported to Transportation Services within 24 hours.

Transportation has seven days to get the accident information to the Department of Central Management Services (CMS). Failure to do this within the seven calendar days may result in forfeiture of coverage by the driver and/or the employing agency/department. The adjustment process will not begin until this information is known to the adjuster.
