Remember that the most important thing is to leave the damage intact for law enforcement to make a report. Make sure you speak with the officer on scene to find out where to get a copy of the report as your agent will need this information in the future. It is also a good idea to take down your own documentation covering what you feel is damage-related. Your insurance company's appraiser will also want to inspect the damage, so any extra information you can provide will be of value. Call your agent as soon as possible to file a claim.
