INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Several inches of snow in central and southern Indiana has made driving treacherous on many roads, with two deaths reported from crashes since the storm's arrival.
The National Weather Service reports more than 5 inches of snow early Friday in the Vincennes area, with almost 4 inches in Indianapolis.
State police say one of the traffic deaths happened late Thursday when a semi driver lost control on a snow-covered Interstate 70 in eastern Indiana's Wayne County. That semi crossed the median and crashed into a car, killing its driver.
The other fatal crash happened Thursday night on U.S. 40 near Terre Haute when a driver possibly having a medical problem lost control, starting a four-vehicle crash. Police say 51-year-old Karen Price of Brazil died after her car was hit.
