Is there a helpline number I can call to report a hit-and-run accident?

If you need to report a hit-and-run accident in India, these are a few helpline numbers you can call:

  • 112: This is the national emergency number and can be used to report any emergency, including hit-and-run accidents. It’s accessible from all types of phones, even without a SIM card.
  • 100: This is the traditional police helpline number and is also used for reporting hit-and-runs.
  • Local Police Station: If you know the direct number for your local police station, you can call them as well.

For road accidents, you may also call 1073 or 1033 (in the case of National Highways).

When you call, provide the following information:

  • Location: Where the accident occurred, including landmarks, road names, or any other details that can help the police locate the scene quickly.

  • Vehicle Description: Provide a detailed description of the vehicle that fled the scene. This includes the make, model, colour, registration number (if possible), and any other distinguishing features.

  • Driver Description: If you could see the driver, provide details about their appearance, including gender, approximate age, clothing, and any other relevant details.

  • Witness Information: If there were any witnesses, collect their contact information. Their testimony can be very helpful in the investigation.

  • Your Information: Provide your name and contact details so the police can reach you if they need more information.
