Well, the very first thing you should do is call 911. You should have the police come to the scene. If needed, you should have an ambulance come to the scene. If you’re able to, you should try to document the scene by taking pictures on your cell phone, or video, in order to document the positions of the vehicles, the general scene, the damage to the vehicles, et cetera. If there are witnesses, you should try to get their names and phone numbers so that they can be contacted later and used as witnesses when the case is brought.
