Teen from St. Croix Co. killed in crash

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A teenage driver was killed as an April snowstorm made a slippery mess of Twin Cities roads.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 16-year-old Jonathon Pohlen of Houlton, Wisconsin was killed Thursday afternoon when he lost control on snowy Interstate 94 in eastern Minnesota. Investigators say the vehicle crossed over the median and collided with a truck's trailer.

The storm could dump up to a foot of snow in northeastern Minnesota by later today.
