Yes. Regardless of who's at fault for the accident, everyone should report the incident to Uber. It'll help to ensure that they are covered by the insurance and make it clear the driver was in fact in Period 3. We talk more about that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZN9JHwjLu8   


It's also important the driver gets the passengers information as it may be needed later if a lawsuit is filed.

    What happens if the passenger does not report it to Uber?

      Because you reported it, Uber will still be aware of the accident and that's the most important. If the passenger doesn't report it, it could slow things down. Ideally, you want to already have his contact info, so the insurance and/or attorneys can reach him down the road, should he not willingly report the crash or participate.
