Please help ASAP thank you.
To the best of my knowledge MNR conservation officers are designated peace officers so I dont see an issue with them obtaining basic information at the scene. Theres no requirement a police officer actually attend the scene. Sometimes everyone leaves the scene before police even find out about the accident and they have to peace it together after the fact.
While I understand it's annoying to have this hanging over your head, there's not really much you can do except wait for the time being.
Out of curiosity, where did this happen? Im guessing northern Ontario?
No. The insurance company will still assign fault based on the circumstances involved and the fault determination rules. Public roadway, parking lot, private driveway, unassumed road - makes very little difference in how fault is assigned.The_outdoorsman wrote:...So last night I found out that according to the MTO the road is actually deamed a "Private Road With Public Access" and not a high way. So this being said I got into an accident on private property meaning no one should be at fault right?
For the purposes of a charge under the Highway Traffic Act the fact that it is not a public highway will make a difference, but does not mean you cannot be charged at all.
Your insurance company will, contingent on your coverage, have to pay for repairs and damage caused in the accident - why wouldn't it consider this an accident? Undoubtedly an at-fault accident at that.The_outdoorsman wrote:...Also what will happen will my insurance still take it as an accident in this case?

You're screwed, I can't imagine anything but 100 % your fault. I'm surprised you didn't get slapped with Dangerous. Sounds like a real ballsy move that's gonna cost you big.
Damages for the other parties are still covered under your insurance policy up to your max. liability (usually $1 million); Collision coverage is only for your truck. So if you get into an at-fault accident, your insurance company will not repair your vehicle.The_outdoorsman wrote:I do not have collision on my truck so in others words I guess I'm pretty screwed in this case?
