Never move a car for an accident. Something simple as that can make you at fault.

My brother was in a car accident and didn't move his car but when the cops got there they told him he was supposed to cause the car wasn't damaged enough to have it stay there and he's in the way of traffic.

There are specific signs in my state that say "For accidents without injury, please move able cars to the shoulder,". It really just depends where you are- I'm not sure how moving from the flow of traffic would put you at fault anyways.

It's not the moving itself, I don't think. I think they just meant if you move the car, they can't study the accident as easily so it's MORE likely that anyone could be found at fault if anyone isn't being cooperative or if anyone is dishonest.

Not in California, either. If you are involved in a minor traffic collision, and the cars are still drivable, you are supposed to move them to a safe spot and then deal with it. Always a good idea to take pictures of the license plate and damage before moving them, though.

I'm sure the laws about this are different in every country, but where I'm from if the accident has no injuries or casualties (i.e. only car/property damage) you're supposed to try and get it out of the way so you don't block traffic. If there's an injury, don't touch them.

Well I don't know about the whole of U.S. or other countries, but in PA on highways there are signs that say "if no injury move vehicles from travel lanes". If others are going really fast and then there's your car blocking the lane, that could cause a pile-up. I once almost crashed into an 18-wheeler which was standing still in the right lane on a 70 mph highway.. it was scary cause i didn't see it behind other cars.

This is true. And it drives me crazy how many idiot drivers in this state leave their vehicle in place instead of moving it out of the way. If you're that concerned about evidence of fault, take a quick picture of the position of the vehicles and then MOVE.

I'm guessing the other driver drove off in a different direction than OP was going, & there was either too much traffic to make a U turn or OP was too surprised to react fast enough.

What part of Texas is this? Every accident I see is smack dab in the middle of the road and the cops take up an extra lane as well, compressing traffic all into one lane.

Never move your car until the police arrive. YDI.

I'm sure you'd be able to notice the violent rocking caused by being rear ended on a video camera. That coupled with the fact that the car is stopped makes it pretty obvious they were rear ended.
