The emergency accident reporting plan (EARP) is in affect for the Wichita only. That means, if you are involved a crash, no one is hurt, no drugs or alcohol involved and the cars are driveable, you are urged to exchange information and fill out an accident form. You can find one at your local QuikTrip or download one on our website.
Just to the north, in Salina the scene is much of the same. According to our news partners at the Salina Journal, police have shut down Broadway Boulevard and Ohio Street for crews to treat the streets for the ice.
Emergency crews are on the scene of an accident involving nearly six vehicles. At least one person was hurt.
Operation Slick Streets has been implemented for the City of Salina. Much like EARP, if the crash doesn't involve injuries, drugs or alcohol, you don't have to notify police.
