Due to the high number of crashes in Cheyenne due to a winter storm, the Cheyenne Police Department has activated its Accident Alert System.

That means officers will only be responding to accidents involving injuries, drunk drivers or immovable vehicles. Drivers involved in all other accidents should exchange information and later fill out a delayed accident form.

Freezing drizzle was reported in Cheyenne early this morning, creating a thin sheet of ice on local streets and roads. Snow is expected to continue in the area through today, and motorists should be prepared for slick conditions.
