The snow has arrived and actually stuck! It’s looking like cold temperatures and more snow on and off throughout the day and into tomorrow. Word is Punxsutawney Phil is to blame but it might just be winds out of some direction, air pressure and other such manner of more scientific stuff 🤷🏻♂️
We responded to numerous collisions yesterday. If you are involved in a collision, please move off the road completely either preferably into a nearby parking lot or off onto the shoulder. Do not stop in the road or intersection to inspect your vehicle and or exchange information if your vehicle is still operable. This creates a safety risk to yourself and other motorists especially during snowy/icy road conditions.
When the weather starts getting bad, we generally see an uptick in collisions. There may be extended delays before we can get to your collision as a result between the road conditions, other calls for service that a priority and the number of collisions we are responding to at the same time.
If you are involved in a collision and have already exchanged information, you can file a collision report online at https://fortress.wa.gov/wsp/wrecr/OMVCR/ at your convenience.
