Winter storm subsides, 3 killed on Mich. roads

UNDATED – A winter storm is subsiding after dumping up to 10 inches of snow on some parts of Michigan and causing three deaths, leaving in its wake treacherous roads and more than 500 school closings.

The slow-moving storm that began Tuesday is blamed for the deaths of a 35-year-old Ypsilanti woman who was killed after her car was broad-sided by a waste hauling truck on Interstate 94, about 30 miles southwest of Detroit.

Officials say weather conditions also were responsible for the death of a 70-year-old Kalamazoo woman and a 38-year-old man in Isabella County.

Wind gusts today are expected to cause snow drifts and low visibility.

Snow totals in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties were between 7 and 9 inches
this morning.
