  • Details of insurers of other vehicles involved
  • Names and addresses of non-hostile witnesses
  • Number of any Police Officer present
  • Details of width of road, position of vehicles involved and of any other traffic, skid marks, position of traffic signs, traffic islands, turnings etc. in the area. Try to show these details in a sketch
