By  | 

CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities have blamed at least two deaths on a winter storm that moved through the Midwest, closing schools and forcing the cancellation of hundreds of flights.

Police near Flint, Michigan, say one person was killed Friday after a semitrailer crashed into a car that was stopped in traffic on U.S. 23.

In Naperville, Illinois, a hospital spokesman says a man in his 60s suffered a fatal heart attack Friday morning while shoveling snow. The National Weather Service reported at least 8 inches of snow fell in the Chicago suburb.

Michigan State Police also tallied 16 semis among 38 vehicles involved in a chain-reaction crash amid heavy snowfall on Interstate 94 near Kalamazoo.

The weather service also reported 11 inches of snow near South Bend, Indiana.
