What should I do if I get in a car accident in Columbia?
Check for injuries first and request the necessary medical care before moving on to any logistic concerns—as always, your well-being matters most. It's also important to notify law enforcement as soon as possible.

Before you leave the scene, take photos of the point of contact, damage to both vehicles, road signs and conditions, and other relevant factors.
