In Case of an Accident
Accidents are caused by unsafe actions of the driver, unsafe vehicle conditions, unsafe environmental conditions, or a combination of the three. Vehicle accidents should always be investigated by the proper authorities. In most cases, the Highway Patrol should be the primary investigating authority. However, local sheriff's or police departments may be notified depending on the location of the accident. All motor vehicle accidents, regardless of damage amount, must be reported to State Fleet Services.
The driver of the State Fleet vehicle is responsible for completing the Risk Management Fund Motor Vehicle Accident Report, SFN 51301.
UND departments must deliver a copy of the Motor Vehicle Accident Report (see Forms) to UND Transportation within 24 hours of the incident. The UND Incident Form must be submitted on-line directly to Environmental Health and Safety by going to: http://und.edu/finance-operations/environmental-health-and-safety. In the top right hand corner, click on “Report an Incident”. Then click on the Incident Report Form to open a fillable, electronic Incident Report Form on your computer. All accidents involving a State Fleet vehicle must have a police report done at the time of the incident. In the event of serious property damage, personal injury, or if a death occurs, notify State Fleet Services immediately at (701)328-1472 or 1-800-472-2121 after hours. Also notify UND Transportation (701)777-4123; 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.
