Police: Storm in Ohio had role in 3 crash deaths

Associated Press - December 13, 2010 7:25 AM ET

CLEVELAND (AP) - Ohio may not have seen the worst from the winter storm that clobbered the upper Midwest with snow and strong winds.

The National Weather Service says parts of northeast Ohio could receive 2 feet or more of additional snow by Tuesday night. The forecasters say wind gusts of up to 45 mph will cause drifting of snow and reduced visibility.

The State Highway Patrol says a pair of weather related crashes killed three people on Sunday. One wreck was in northeast Ohio's Ashtabula (ash-tuh-BYOO'-luh) County, the other was in central Ohio's Licking County.

The weather service reports areas throughout Ohio received anywhere from a trace of snow to more than 5 inches on Sunday. The 2.9 inches that fell in Columbus set a Dec. 12 record for the city.
