Authorities Warn Of Dangerous Roads

KSAL StaffDecember 21, 2013

Kansas authorities are reporting numerous slide-offs and one fatal wreck as a winter storm brings a mixture of freezing rain and snow.

The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings for a large section of central and eastern Kansas, and winter weather advisories extend into the southwest portion of Kansas. Forecasters say freezing rain started Friday night in southern Kansas. Throughout Saturday, a combination of sleet, freezing rain and snow was intensifying across most of the area under a winter storm warning. Up to 4- to 7-inches of snow is expected in a band across northeast Kansas.

The Kansas Turnpike Authority says one person died Saturday morning when the driver of a pickup truck attempted to pass other vehicles and lost control on some ice near the Haysville/Derby interchange.
