If I hit two cars in one collision, is that considered two separate accidents?
I made the mistake of looking at my phone for a few seconds and I hit a car, then bounced off and hit a second car. They're both owned by the same person. Is this considered one or two at-fault accidents?

“Since the two cars were damaged in the same collision, I would expect your insurance company to treat this incident as one at-fault accident.
Once the claim is filed, you can expect your car insurance rate to rise upon renewal.

Can the police determine whether you have car insurance?
If you get pulled over, will police be able to know whether or not you have auto insurance before they ask you for documentation? Can they get that info by running your registration details through their database?

What’s the difference between a crossover and SUV?
I currently own a sedan, but it’s too small for me now that I’ve got a second child on the way. I want to upgrade to something bigger, maybe a crossover or SUV. What’s the difference between these two vehicle types?
