    I had a quick question I am applying for a driving position. I recently got into an accident but there wasn't a ticket given or any Collison. I know on the website it says chargeable accidents I was wondering if this is still OK or does it void my application when they do the background check?

    How can you get in to an accident without a collision?

    So one of you called 911 for the other losing control of their vehicle with no collision involved? I don't.... I don't know. My head hurts.

    I think he merged onto the other car's lane making the other car lose control but not getting hit by it.

    :censored2: I don't know.

    Either way let's say it is an accident does that void it out or is it based on everything else in the application

    You're not getting it. The guy is saying he & the other driver were merging. As a result of this the other driver crashed but didn't make contact with the OP.

    No ticket should be no accident to disqualify an applicant. Good question, actually.

    Moot point since our op appears to be trying for one of the very rare outside hire spots anyway.
