The winter storm that brought many things to a halt in Kansas earlier this week is blamed for at least two deaths, and a third is under investigation.
According to the Kansas Adjutant General's Department, two confirmed fatalities occurred as a result of the storm. A 61-year-old woman in Smith County died in a car one-car accident on Monday. The second storm-related fatality occurred Wednesday morning in Sedgwick County when a 50-year-old woman was killed after her vehicle got stuck in snow on a railroad crossing in Wichita and was struck by a train.
A third death in Montgomery County is being investigated to determine if it is storm-related.
The storm was part of one the biggest winter systems in history, dropping ice and snow from New Mexico to New England. It impacted about a third of the country.
