I think for most people there is a natural powerful emotional reaction
to automatically blame the other person, in order to avoid their own
guilt.  Keeping calm and sticking to the facts, like insurance,
drivers's license, address, phone number should focus people on
the details of getting the accident cleared away as quickly as possible
and out of the distraction of the street.  Unfortunately, I have found that 
rarely to be so.  Most people are too emotionally focussed to do this,
but I did once encounter a lovelly young lady who was traveling with
her boyfriend and was in an accident.  He spoke only Polish, so she graciously handled
all the details.  There are sane people out there.
