Due to the current weather conditions the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office has activated the Emergency Traffic Crash Reporting Plan.
“With the snow coming down, and not appearing to be letting up any time soon we’re moving to an emergency reporting plan temporarily to ensure we have as many available units as possible for emergencies that may potentially arise within the county,” said Sheriff’s deputy Bryan Harl.
While in effect, all motorists involved in non-injury traffic crashes occurring within the unincorporated areas of Kendall County in which the vehicles are still drivable should exchange pertinent information with the other driver including:
- Phone number
- Driver’s license number
- License plate
- Insurance information
- Information on crash location, date and time
Drivers are then asked to report to the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office, 11012 Cornell Lane, Yorkville, to file the report within 48 hours of the crash.
If there is an injury involved or at least one vehicle is not drivable, motorists should contact 911 for emergency personnel to respond.
If a driver is involved in a crash involving private property or an unattended motor vehicle, they are required by law to leave contact information for the property owner. The emergency plan does not exempt the driver from this responsibility.
