Hey guys. It's the OP Nothing really serious happened because of my brain fart, but I'm now thinking it'll be a inside joke at work. The car I was driving was insured, and it was just a small dent. I was asked the questions back at work (company policy) so, if I was drunk, they wouldn't have to get police involved with me staying at the company.

It's kind of a shame the very first words you say can mean everything. The fact you get critiqued about it so harshly as if they had never done it before isn't very fair. How can they expect you to be thinking 100% straight when you were in an accident? I know my nan wasn't when she had hers. Rest easy and take care OP.
Exactly! So many people don't understand the brain often isn't thinking straight after such an event. I got in a car wreck 2 1/5 years ago, a car tboned us as I was crossing the street, the car was speeding and came out of no where. It was horrible I had 4 of my kids I nanny in the car and ALL of the children were injured and bleeding but me. As I had the children laying on the ground and trying to keep them calm while waiting for an ambulance, a sherrif asked me if I had yielded before I crossed, I told him no, even though I did yield. My brain didn't register what he asked because I was focusing on the kids making sure they weren't seriously injured. Cop gave me a ticket as I'm crying and I don't even notice it's a ticket until the next day. Got me a good attorney and that ticket dismissed.
Brains are weird, OP. I was once detained for questioning regarding a series of murders, and while I thought I was following the officers, it turns out I was leading them to a pile of corpses and murder weapons with my prints on them. Ha! No biggie!
Hate to say it, but he could be screwed by this by his insurance. The claims adjusters take witness statements of everyone into account as well as the police report, and all of the above will likely be influenced by his unfortunate first impression. Even if the physical evidence indicates that someone else caused the crash, witnesses create their own stories in their minds after the fact, so the phone statements they make will likely screw him over.
