When reporting an auto accident, it is always best to call the police for a report immediately after an accident occurs, at the scene of the accident, and ask us to respond to your scene to take the report. If this is not possible you may report your accident at Lynbrook Police Headquarters. In most cases the operators of all vehicles involved have to be present to report the accident (excluding when the other operator leaves the scene without making known their identity). Even if you had a very minor accident and may not want a police report, an officer at the scene can give you expert information on how to proceed.
