Car accident question

I was in a car accident on Saturday. It was his fault and he was sited with improper lane change. My question is, there was a very nice man who witnessed the accident and he took the time to write down his information so they could contact him as a witness. I didn't thank him. I was so upset (I have never been in an accident) and on the phone with 911 that I just took it and asked the operator if he needed to stay. I never said thank you. I feel SO bad :( After this is all over, would it be weird to contact him just to say Thanks?

It is perfectly correct to say thank you-I would suggest a card if you have his address, rather than a phone call.

  You can ask your insurance agent if it would be appropriate to contact him or if they say you shouldn't you can ask them to thank him from you.  Hope you weren't hurt.

The police report has his address and phone number.

I had a shoulder injury from hitting the door. But I am thankful my daughter wasn't with me and that I wasn't hurt worse. If the window would have been up, I would have cracked my head on it.

Not at all! I understand that at that moment there was so much going on. A simple thank you to him now would be a nice thing to do. Not alot if people would think of that.

You should send him a thank you card.
