Wichita, Kan. -- Icy roads are to blame for numerous accidents in south-central Kansas.

Freezing drizzle left a light coating of ice on the roadways, which has caused a growing number of accidents. As of 10 a.m., the number of crashes in Sedgwick County surpassed two dozen.

The Emergency Accident Reporting Plan is still in effect for Wichita and Sedgwick County, but has been cancelled for unincorporated areas of the county.

If you are involved in a non-injury accident, both vehicles are driveable and no alcohol is involved, exchange insurance information with the other driver. You then have 48 hours to fill out an accident report. Forms are available at QuikTrip and police substations.

A Winter weather advisory is in effect for south-central Kansas until noon. The freezing drizzle will comes to an end late this morning, leaving behind a mostly cloudy sky.
