UPDATE 9 p.m.
The Colorado Springs Police Department went on accident alert status at 8:40 p.m. "due to road conditions."
When a crash occurs while the Police Department is on accident alert status, motorists should exchange insurance information and file a report later.
The crash must fall under certain criteria, however: A report can be filed later if there is no injury requiring medical attention, if no driver is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs and if there is no damage to public property.
The Fountain Police Department went on accident alert about 5:30 p.m. A cold report can be filed in person or online within 72 hours, police said.

Wintry weather is expected Tuesday in Colorado Springs before temperatures steadily increase through the end of the week, meteorologists say.
The National Weather Service in Pueblo predicted highs of 36 degrees Tuesday, 51 degrees Wednesday and 54 degrees Thursday.
Tuesday has a 50 percent chance of snow and freezing drizzle before 1 p.m., then rain and snow until 2 p.m., then snow, the weather service said. Expect areas of fog before 11 a.m. Tuesday night brings a 50 percent chance of snow before midnight, then a chance of snow showers until 4 a.m.
"Fog, flurries and freezing drizzle will be expected for the morning commute, especially in northern El Paso County," Gazette news partner KKTV reported. "Temps will be chilly, confined to the 30s across lower elevations with a bit of a breeze making it feel colder. Tuesday afternoon and evening a secondary round of snowfall will develop, pushing through the I-25 corridor."
Colorado Springs might see up to 2 inches of accumulation, and Monument might see up to 3 inches, KKTV reported.
"Best accumulations for all will be on grassy and elevated surfaces," KKTV reported. "Overall, the biggest concern will be slippery spots and the potential for lingering freezing drizzle into Wednesday morning."
Skies are expected to be sunny Wednesday and Thursday, the weather service said.
