I am a witness to an accident, police took my name, what are they doing with it now?
My house is right on the route of my friend, so he gave me a ride back from home. As we pull out of hte school parking lot, we see a black jeep with sucky driving. This guy can't back up right, and he ends up driving into a bush when pulling out. My friend comments, says we should probably keep a good distance from that guy. So, we and the rest of traffic is going at 25mph or so down this road. There is a road block because there is utility work going on, and a little detour, so traffic was slower than usual. Meanwhile, we are still ahead of this Jeep, keeping our distance. THe car infront of the jeep slows down and stops for the detour, the jeep does not. Needless to say, Jeep smacks into rear of that car. Car's back end is totalled. Jeep has a hefty bumper, he was okay. We were fine, since we kept our distance we had ample time to stop and pulled over off the road slightly to allow the car behind to stop.
Of course being a road block on a fairly busy road, cops were everywhere. It takes just a short bit for a cop to arrive, instructs the two involved in the accident to pull over, asks us as a witness to do the same. He asks for an ID, drivers license, and what we saw, and for phone #'s.
So do they just use this incase this needs to go to COurt?
