When must an accident be reported to the police?

All accidents should be reported; however, it is not a requirement. Accidents involving death, or personal injury, or if one or more vehicles cannot be driven from the scene under its own power, must be reported to the police department in the jurisdiction where the accident occurred. Fender-bender-type accidents in which there are no injuries and in which the vehicles are operable are not required to be reported; however, your insurance provider may require a police report. The rule of thumb would be to report all accidents in McCandless to the police.
