Vir­ginia State Po­lice said the driver of a mil­i­tary sur­plus ve­hi­cle was killed on Sun­day af­ter he lost con­trol on In­ter­state 81 be­cause of slick road con­di­tions.

Vir­ginia State Po­lice said they re­sponded to more than 300 traf­fic crashes and helped nearly 200 dis­abled ve­hi­cles in Vir­ginia from mid­night to late Sun­day af­ter­noon (Vir­ginia time).

The storm knocked out power to nearly 200,000 peo­ple in Vir­ginia and North Carolina at its height. — AP
