Overland Park police asking motorists to walk in non-injury accidents. With the slick conditions on the roads this morning, Overland Park police are requesting that drivers involved in minor, non-injury accidents collect information on the incident themselves and then report it at the Sanders Justice Center (12400 Foster) or the Myron Scafe Building (8500 Antioch) instead of calling officers. Police will still respond to accident calls involving injuries or damage serious enough to render a vehicle inoperable. If you’re involved in a non-injury accident this morning, be sure to collect license numbers, insurance providers, names and witnesses.
