  • Wear your seatbelt properly
  • Don’t be distracted on the road

    • John has been with Prime for over 18 years wearing several different hats and we are very excited to welcome him to our team!

Ruthie Kelley & Kevin French – Accident Claims

  • Contact safety as quickly as you can when you get in an accident so they can provide the best help possible
