So I was re-ended in my personal vehicle this evening and the (insert explicit) took off. I am going to start Prime on the 28th. Will the accident show up on my driving record, do I need to report it. I was not issued a citation but I will probably have to claim on it as the idiot took off. Thankfully there were no injuries, I just don't want to get in trouble for not disclosing something I should have. This would be the only thing on my record for the last 3 years, and I haven't been in an accident involving a commercial vehicle in the last 10 years.

I am glad you weren't injured.

There is no way an accident like that, when you are rear-ended will reflect negatively on your driving record. However you should disclose it regardless of who was at fault.

Deep breath...

Yes thank heavens you are OK.

and yes don't worry about it. ;)

You have other things to worry about ...like learning to drive.

And welcome to Prime ;)

Thank god you are ok..... its a not at fault accident and look on your insurance policy if you have uninsured motorist coverage.... that will cover it

Thank you both! I'll get with my recruiter today and make sure she knows. I was a little on edge yesterday after everything happened. I can't wait to get started.
