1 dead after Mich. storm leads to slippery roads


PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - A storm that brought snow and hazardous driving conditions to parts of southern Michigan is blamed in at least one traffic death.

The National Weather Service says southeast Michigan was feeling the effects of the storm Friday morning, with an inch or more on the ground as the morning commute began. The snow left slippery driving conditions in its wake and numerous weather-related spinouts and crashes were reported.

WNEM reports a 49-year-old woman was killed in a crash Friday morning in Genesse County's Genesee Township. Authorities say she lost control of her car due to extremely icy conditions and was struck by another vehicle.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports that two people were injured when two snow plows collided in St. Clair County's Columbus Township.
