The Topeka Police Department went into its walk-in accident reporting phase due to hazardous travel conditions late Friday night. Officers will only be dispatched to the scene of accidents involving injury, accidents involving disabled vehicles, and to hit-and-run accidents. During this time citizens involved in minor accidents will be directed to the Law Enforcement Center to complete accident reports.
Snow mixed with ice has resulted in most area roadways being covered and slick. TPD is asking people to limit travel only to emergencies and to exercise extreme caution if they must be out on the roads.
