COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Road conditions on the north side of Colorado Springs and north of the city Friday evening were treacherous due to snow.

While on accident alert, or cold reporting, if there is a crash where alcohol or drugs are not suspected and there are no injuries, the drivers involved are asked to exchange information instead of calling police out to the scene. Drivers then have up to 72 hours to pick up a cold crash report from the police department or State Patrol.
