In the event of an emergency, if not given first aid, the victim’s life can be in danger. So can the person causing the accident take the victim to the emergency room?
Ask: My father was riding a motorbike and had an accident with a car. After the accident, my father was seriously injured, when the family arrived, everyone said that the driver took my father to the hospital. Because the driver who took my father to the hospital with the same car that caused the accident, the scene of the accident was disturbed. So, is it correct to drive away from the scene like that?

Major Ta Viet Tiep, Vice Captain of the Traffic Police – Order Team, Hoang Mai District Police, Hanoi replied:
According to the regulations, when a traffic accident occurs, those directly involved in the accident must remain at the scene, waiting for the police agency to come to solve it.
However, in case of an emergency, if not treated, the victim’s life can be in danger. In this case, the car driver is allowed to use the vehicle to take the victim to the emergency room.
After taking the victim to the emergency room, this person must immediately return to the scene and report to the police.
As for the victim’s family, upon arriving at the scene, immediately notify the police agency for verification, and at the same time invite the car driver to bring the vehicle home for settlement according to regulations.
According to current regulations, the place to report is the nearest police station or local government where the traffic accident occurs.
Accordingly, the functional agency will conduct classification and notify specialized units related to the settlement.
When receiving information, the police agency will reconstruct the scene, examine the accident to find out the cause for handling.
