I provided the info to the manager to provide to his insurance. I went 1 day after the accident and tried to file a police report and they cant take it unless their called to the scene. They game me a form to fill out and self report it. I am in new york state it has been 2 days and they have not contacted me yet. thoughts? legal wise did I do the right thing?
