First, the officer determines if anyone is injured, and calls for fire/rescue and ambulance. As soon as another unit shows up, he begins marking the road for the position of the vehicles involved. He obtains the paperwork and begins his notes for the report. How do you feel the office mishandled the accident scene? I agree with Bruce, our department's accident specialist, trained at Northwestern University, once did a 143 page report on a minor injury accident, because he knew it was going to end up in court. He even pull the brake light bulbs, which were broken, and they determined they were not illuminated when the vehicle was stuck.
