Administrative Services

Accidents

If an accident occurs, make sure all individuals receive medical attention. Secure the names and addresses of people involved, witnesses, and license numbers of other vehicles. Secure the names of the insurance companies for all vehicles involved in the accident. Follow the emergency calling procedures located in the vehicle's glove compartment.

If you are involved in an accident, regardless of how minor it may be, report it as soon as possible to Transportation Services personnel so the vehicle can be inspected. Damage is not always visible.

Transportation Services must report all accidents to Risk Management/Auto Liability at CMS in Springfield, IL within 7 calendar days to insure payment if the WIU driver is at fault. If you are not able to present the accident report immediately, call the Vice President for Administrative Services office (309-298-1800) so the accident can be reported. Failure to comply may result in the driver or the department being liable for all damages. If the accident is the other driver's fault, the accident report is needed as soon as possible to begin the process of collecting payment for damages.
