Slick Roads from Winter Storm Blamed in One Death (Feb 13, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A fast-moving winter storm has dumped nearly a half-foot of snow on parts of Oklahoma and has contributed to the death of a motorist.

The National Weather Service says up to 4 inches of snow was reported in areas in western Oklahoma - including Roger Mills and Washita counties - but other areas received a dusting.

Road conditions improved as temperatures climbed above freezing in central and eastern Oklahoma, but Department of Transportation officials said highway crews continued to apply salt and sand to slick spots in western Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 44-year-old Christopher Brunson was killed when a van headed west on an icy Oklahoma Highway 29 spun out of control and collided with Brunson's pickup truck just before 8 a.m. Monday. Brunson died several hours later.
