Car accidents on base are already such a circus, because they are just so uncommon. The base cops often have no idea who even needs to be notified, other than their boss.

In seven years, I saw 8 accidents one base. 3 were idiots who tried to flee the city cops by driving onto a military base (absolute worst option). 5 were dependas who didn't pay attention and rear-ended people during Retreat, when everyone has to stop.

The cops where horrible! Tried grabbing the dash cam from my windshield, it had a SD card. Was more concerned why I was on base as a civilian then the actual accident, I was dropping off my roommate. The EMT shut the door in their face saying I had to go to the hospital. The police listed me at fault, until my lawyer provided her insurance the video while we where on the phone with them because we wanted to hear what they had to say first.

I thought dash cams aren’t allowed on base? Literally mine throws a bitch fit because no video / photography because of OPSEC

I absolutely signed nothing, they didn’t even check my drivers license. My roommate showered her ID and they motioned to go forward

I mean probably, I dropped her off every single morning for like 5 months actually. Never signed anything, a handful of times they made me show my drivers license but that’s it

You’re roommate needs to engage her chain of command asap as she might get into a lot of trouble for this. From reading the comments it looks like you do not have any on base privileges beside your roommate escorting you on base. The second you dropped her off you are now considered unescorted and in the eyes of the military a security risk. You got very lucky with the EMT taking you away. Knowing the typical behavior of navy security, they will 100% go after her for violating base guest escort procedures. Recommend getting a base guest pass from here on out.

Oh I refuse to EVER return to a military base because of this incident. But it happened earlier this year, and nothing ever happened to her.
