PRAIRIEVILLE, Mich. (AP) - Michigan authorities say that a winter storm that dumped up to 14 inches of snow on Michigan's Lower Peninsula has claimed at least one life, a 42-year-old woman killed when the vehicle in which she was a passenger spun out of control and struck a tree.
Police in Barry County's Prairieville Township say the crash happened about 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Prairieville is about 35 miles south-southeast of Grand Rapids.
According to reports, a 36-year-old man was driving when he lost control on the snowy road.
