NC Patrol: Weather to blame in 2 traffic deaths

RALEIGH, N.C. -

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says the weather was a factor in separate traffic accidents in Surry County that killed two people.

A passenger died Tuesday afternoon when a woman lost control of her pickup truck on a road covered with snow and ice. The truck went down an embankment and hit a tree. Troopers said 68-year-old Jean Conley of Elkin died. Troopers said it appeared the victim was not wearing a seat belt.

About the same time, two vehicles collided on N.C. 104 near Mount Airy. Thirty-seven-year-old Joyce M. McDaniel of Meadows Dan, Va., died. She was a passenger in a minivan involved in the crash. Troopers say the weather contributed to the crash.

The North Carolina Transportation Department says most roads in the state were hazardous Wednesday morning.
