MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Police Department, the City of Southaven, the DeSoto County Sheriff's Office, and the Shelby County Sheriff's Office implemented their inclement weather policies on Wednesday night. 

If a driver is involved in a crash and there are no injuries, no drinking  or drugs involved, and no wreckers are needed, those involved should exchange names, addresses, phone numbers, insurance information, and vehicle tag numbers.

In Memphis, police say drivers should then arrange a time to meet at the nearest MPD precinct or the MPD Traffic Office at 1925 Union Avenue.

Drivers should bring their vehicles, proof of insurance, and registration to file the report within 10 business days of the crash.


In Southaven, officials say all non-emergency city offices will be closed Thursday.  Emergency responders and road crews will be available in full force, however.  Officials ask that you contact the Emergency Communication Center for assistance with life threatening injuries at 662-393-0228 or 911.

In DeSoto, sheriff's deputies advise that drivers move their vehicles out of the way to exchange information.  If drivers would like to file a report, they could do so at a later time.  For non-emergencies, you can call the Sheriff's office at (662) 469-8027.
