    I had a very minor car accident the other day. I literally tapped the vehicle in the front of me due to my changing of the radio (I know, I know). No one was injured. Their car sustained minimal damage and my '90 Ford Bronco is bulletproof. This is my first vehicle collision.

    Question: Do I need to report this to West Point? If so, what steps would y'all recommend to do so.
    Will they rescind my appointment for such a minor incident (guess I'm just a worrier)

    Thank you in advance and I will be more careful next time!

    If you were cited by the police yes- if not no.

    I agree with BigNick about needing to tell them, but to be on the safe side you might want to anyways. It can't really hurt. I am 99.99% sure that it will not do anything to jeopardize your appointment.

    Only if you received a citation. If you were not cited, don't waste anyone's time reporting it.

    Both BigNick and Scoutpilot are correct here. Good luck.

    God Bless and God Speed,

    The people I hit were really cool about it all and we didn't even get the police involved -- mainly because it was so minor. I might as well just run it by admissions, just so no surprises occur. Thank you everyone!
