My daughter had a minor accident involving a gas pump. She was turning between pump islands, and bumped one of the pumps. It was on private property. Cops were called by station, to document accident. She was given a "blue sheet" to fill out. I assume a police report was filed ???,but no ticket was issued. I talked to my insurance company and the person I talked to said she wouldn't send the blue sheet in because it was a very minor accident, on private property, and didn't involve another vehicle or pedestrian. She said when these blue sheets are recorded, they do not differentiate between this type of accident and more severe accidents, and my come back to haunt her in the future. I don't want to break the law, but also don't want to affect her future insurance costs/availability

Law enforcement told her to do this and there is now a debate. Let an attorney that works in the field of auto accident defense ultimately answer the question for you!
Good luck. Glad no one was hurt.

You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
