If you’re involved in an accident, it’s important to get as much information as possible. If you’re injured or in a state of shock you may not be able to get all the information you need at the time.

This will assist your claim and help your insurance company obtain the best possible outcome at a later date. It’s recommended you carry a pen, paper and disposable camera in your car to help you accurately record the accident details.
Information to collect at the time of accident (if possible)
That music at the beginning is from the opening of the classic American truck driving song Convoy by C.W McCall.
According to Wikipedia – C. W. McCall is the pseudonym of William Dale Fries, Jr. (born 15 November 1928, Audubon, Iowa, United States), an American singer, activist and politician known for his truck-themed outlaw country songs.
The fiddle music you can hear over the track is by The Foggy Mountain Boys who, according to Wikipedia: was an American bluegrass band. The band was founded by guitarist Lester Flatt and banjo player Earl Scruggs. Because of the personnel, particularly Scruggs, who has since become iconic in music history for his masterly handling of the banjo, the group is considered one of the premier bluegrass groups in the history of the genre. Originally formed in 1948 by Flatt, who brought Scruggs with him shortly after leaving Bill Monroe’s bluegrass band.
