Snow, freez­ing rain pum­mels mid-At­lantic

Stamford Advocate - - Nation / World -

A win­ter storm that con­trib­uted to at least five deaths in the Mid­west pum­meled the midAt­lantic re­gion for a sec­ond day Sun­day, bring­ing with it an icy mix that knocked out power, can­celled flights and con­trib­uted to hun­dreds of car ac­ci­dents.

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

Po­lice said Ron­ald W. Har­ris, 73, of Gainesville, Geor­gia, died af­ter his ve­hi­cle was struck by two trac­tor-trail­ers. The two trac­tor-trailer driv­ers were taken to a hospi­tal for in­juries that were not con­sid­ered life-threat­en­ing. The state med­i­cal ex­am­iner was ex­pected to de­ter­mine later whether Har­ris’ death was storm-re­lated.
