Roadways in Fort Collins, CO Under Accident Alert Status

According to the Collegian Central, temperatures fell down to the single digits in Fort Collins, Colorado, the site of recent roadway accidents. As a consequence, police placed the city on accident alert due to slick roads and snow. The accident alert status applies mostly to those involved in minor accidents in which neither party is seriously injured or under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Those involved in minor accidents were told to mail their accident reports to the police station so that the police could focus their efforts on serious collisions. Police recommended that drivers and motorcyclists “reduce speed, leave extra space between vehicles, and avoid making last minute decisions.”

The accident alert was well intentioned, as there was a recent motorcycle crash in southeast Fort Collins. The motorcyclist was riding along Harmony Road, a common site of motorcycle accidents this past year, when he lost control of his bike and crashed due to adverse weather conditions. Thankfully, the motorcyclist was not seriously injured. Emergency crews arrived and transported the man to Medical Center of the Rockies.
