Winter Storms Lead To Deaths

Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- At least 22 people are dead in traffic accidents blamed on wintry conditions in the Plains and upper Midwest.

The weekend-long blast of ice and windblown snow led to multi-car pileups that closed sections of some major highways. Improving conditions have been a help to road crews dealing with the storm's aftermath.

One of the latest victims was a woman in Michigan who lost control of her truck. It rolled into a ditch filled with water, trapping her.

In addition to the Michigan fatality, accidents on highways slippery with snow and ice killed at least eight people in Minnesota, three in Indiana, three in Wyoming, five in Wisconsin and one each in Texas and Kansas.
