Icy Conditions Blamed For Deaths

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- At least 12 traffic deaths in the Midwest are blamed on icy and rain-slicked roads as holiday travelers struggle to reach their destinations.

The deaths are reported in Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. Motorists elsewhere also found it tough going.

But it's air and train travel that are especially snarled by snowstorms and Arctic cold. More than 500 flights have been canceled at Chicago' O'Hare Airport, and there are lots of delays.

At Chicago's Union Station, some Amtrak passengers waited almost a full day to board their trains. Each train delay caused a ripple effect, and several trains were canceled.

Passengers were especially upset with their treatment. It was so cold in Union Station that people could see their breath.
