Accident with an Unattended Vehicle

When an accident occurs with an unattended vehicle, the driver must:

1. Immediately stop as close to the accident scene as possible without obstructing traffic more than is necessary.

2. Locate and notify the owner or driver of the vehicle of the name and address of the driver and owner of the vehicle striking the unattended vehicle.

3. Leave in a conspicuous place on the vehicle which was struck, a written notice giving the name and address of the driver and the owner of the vehicle mentioned above. In the note, include an explanation of how the accident happened.
