The car needed to be towed. Luckily car insurance here in Malaysia works fast as long as you provide them with the details necessary and the documents. One of the crucial papers is the Police report. Remember to send the car to the police station after the accident and make a report. I am giving emphasis on how fast the Car Insurance here in Malaysia works and that the damages have been paid although not exactly everything, but it still been sorted out. Most of you may disagree with this but if you compare this to some other countries where I have been even though it took a month before the car was repaired, the situation here is pretty much better.

Car Insurance will settle it, although it may not include all the damages but still your car can run on the road again.
