Accident Documentation

In the event of an accident, the Driver must stop immediately and contact the proper legal authorities to file a police report. All accidents must be reported regardless of the degree of damage sustained.

It is the responsibility of the Driver to take pictures of both vehicles and obtain at least one witness statement from the passengers. Once the Driver has contacted the proper legal authorities they must contact the Bowie State University Transportation Manager to report the accident.

It is the responsibility of the Department Head to advise the Vice President for Administration & Finance and the appropriate Cabinet members of the accident/incident in the event of any injury to students or employees. 

The Transportation Manager will collect the completed insurance forms, witness statements, pictures, etc. prior to forwarding to the University’s Insurance Coordinator.
