Hamilton, Ontario – A new iPhone application helps Canadians take some of the stress out of a car crash by equipping them with all the information, tips and tools they need in the event of a collision.

The Unhappen My Accident iPhone application was launched by CARSTAR Automotive Canada, and is free and available for download from the Apple iTunes App store or at CARSTAR. The application stores critical driver and crash information such as insurance, vehicle and emergency contact details. One button displays the necessary steps to take following a collision, including recording crash details, taking photos of the damage, and locating the nearest CARSTAR location for repairs. The application also provides 24/7 access to a live, experienced operator who can guide drivers through the process and answer any questions.

“In our experience at CARSTAR, we know that even the most seasoned drivers can become flustered in an accident situation,” said Lisa Mercanti-Ladd, AVP of marketing and client services. “But the Unhappen My Accident app can be particularly useful to parents of young drivers. It can help mitigate many of the accident pitfalls young drivers commonly face, usually as a result of panic and inexperience, and potentially minimize the cost and aggravation for the driver, their family and insurance company.”

For each application download, CARSTAR has committed to donate $1.00, to a total of up to $10,000, to Cystic Fibrosis Canada, its charitable partner for the last ten years.
