A Winter Storm Warning and current snow conditions have caused the Arlington Heights Police Department to activate the accident plan for Arlington Heights traffic accidents for at least a good part of the day on Thursday. When the accident plan is activated, in certain conditions, all drivers involved in the accident are instructed to complete the accident report at the Arlington Heights Police Department Headquarters on Sigwalt Street near Arlington Heights Road.
Drivers are instructed to come into the station for report when the following conditions exist (all conditions must be met:)
Crashes DO NOT involve injuries,
Involved vehicles are ALL drivable
ALL involved drivers can come into the police station
It is still best to call 9-1-1 for all accidents, but expect to be instructed to come into the police station if all of the above conditions exist.
The Cardinal will not necessarily post when the accident plan is over for this weather period.
