What to Do When You Get in a Wreck

Car Wreck
Learn what to do when you get in a wreck.

Getting in a car crash is one of the scariest things that can happen when you’re driving, so it’s important to stay calm and know what to do. Follow this guide on what to do when you get in a wreck and you’ll have a less stressful, safer experience.

First, prepare yourself before it happens by getting a vehicle safety kit to keep in your car and keeping your emergency information on-hand. Important documents include insurance cards and vehicle registration information.

At the scene of the accident, pull your car over somewhere safe. Call 911 in case you or other drivers are injured and to see if an officer needs to be present at the scene. Then, if you’re able, get out of your car and check on the other drivers.

Exchange information with any other drivers involve in the wreck so you can file an insurance claim later. You should take pictures of the accident scene for evidence when you file.

At Rex Perry Hyundai we want you to be as safe as possible in your vehicle. So, contact us for preventative service and repairs so you can be confident that your car is being taken care of.

The 24th Annual Pineywoods Purgatory cycling event is happening early next month on Saturday October 3 starting at the George H. Henderson, Jr. Expo Center in Lufkin. The event will take place from 8 am to 4 pm with cycling paths winding through the Texas Forest Country.

Ranging from 25 to 102 miles, there are four rides with varying distance and terrain for every kind of cyclist. Whether you want a serious challenge or a more leisurely ride, you’ll have a great time at Pineywoods Purgatory.

The Pineywoods Purgatory event includes excellent hospitality from the folks at Angelina Expo Center, so this is more than just a day of cycling, it’s also a fun event for families and friends.

The name Pineywoods Purgatory comes from the experience of being “between the heaven of the East Texas countryside and the ‘hell’ of having one more hill to climb,” and it was invented and named by cyclist Garland “Bubba” Parise in 1992. Parise wanted Lufkin to have a big cycling event comparable to others in big Texas cities. We hope you’ll join us at Rex Perry Hyundai in supporting this important part of Lufkin’s history!
