Along with what sdennislee said...sometimes the would be rescuer can do more harm than good. In almost every circumstance a crash victim should be left as they are found in a car. Let the professionals get them out. (Cars very very rarely catch fire in a crash...people will see smoke and think the car is on fire...usually it is the airbags which are coated in a fine powder.)
I've seen CPR shields for under a dollar and masks for around $5.00.

If you are concerned with mouth to mouth without a mask (and you should be), perform chest compressions they will move some air. Don't let the lack of a mask stop you from performing chest compressions.

An example of a weekly tip:
When approaching the scene first assure the scene is safe, i.e. is the vehicle stable, are there power lines involved, leaking gas, traffic, chemicals, etc... if the scene is not safe wait on first responders. You don't want to make their job harder by forcing them to rescue and treat an additional victim.

Keep a pair of rubber gloves in you kit, body substance isolation, protecting yourself from bodily fluids is critical

Assess the patient in the following order A, B, C, D and H and correct as you find:
A = Airway, make sure there is an open airway - you will learn 2 techniques in CPR glass, too hard to explain the difference here, if head or neck injury is suspected. Always suspect head and neck injuries where massive trauma exists or a large force was the mechanism of injury such as a serious motor vehicle accident.
B = Breathing, is the patient breathing. If not you will need to breath for them. You will learn this in conjunction with A above, as airway is critical.
C = Circulation, is the heart pumping blood, if not begin CPR, if alone begin CPR for 2 minutes before taking a break to call for help.
D = Defibrillation, use of AED. Will be taught in CPR class is you take a provider level course.
If the patient is talking to you can assume for the time being A, B, C and D are ok but be alert for changes.
H = Hemorrhage, control bleeding.

Methods of controlling bleeding will be the next tip.

If this is of interest let me know.

On top of the first aid info..think about what happens if you happen to roll up on a crash. Is it blocking trafffic? Is there a way to slow down traffic so more people don't plow into the wreck? Good time for traffic triangles/cones or flares. But be sure there is NO fuel leak before setting out flares.

Get emergency services rolling as soon as you can.
