CHICAGO (AP) An arctic air mass that brought snow and ice to an area stretching from the Rocky Mountains to northern New England on Monday was poised to give way to record-breaking cold temperatures.
In mid-Michigan, three people were killed in a two-vehicle crash that the Eaton County sheriffs department attributed to heavy snowfall. And in Kansas, the highway patrol reported that a truck lost control on an icy highway and slammed head-on into another truck, killing an 8-year-old girl in the other vehicle.
In Chicago, where as much as 6 inches of snow fell, an Envoy Air flight from Greensboro, North Carolina, slid off an icy runway at OHare International Airport as it tried to land at about 7:45 a.m. None of the 38 passengers and three crew members were injured, according to the citys aviation department.
