Several people have died on slick Kansas roads as a winter storm hit the state.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office says two people died Saturday night on U.S. 56 when their car skidded sideways on an ice-covered bridge and was struck by a tractor-trailer.

Near the southwest Kansas town of Deerfield, one person died and five others were injured around 9 a.m. Sunday. The accident happened when a sport utility vehicle veered out of control on an icy curve and rolled. The Kansas Highway Patrol identified the fatality victim as 51-year-old Raquel Alvarado of Deerfield.

And in Shawnee County, a tractor-trailer skidded on a slick stretch of Interstate 70 around 2:50 a.m. Sunday, rolled and caught fire. The driver was killed. The accident also shut down eastbound lanes of I-70 for several hours.
