A late winter storm overlapping the start of spring has pushed across Michigan, dumping up to 28 inches of snow in the Upper Peninsula and causing icing that caused a fatal crash in the Lower Peninsula.
The National Weather Service in Marquette said Wednesday night that the heaviest snowfall has been in the northern and western Upper Peninsula. It says 28 inches fell in Ontonagon County near the unincorporated community of Rockland and 26 inches was measured in Houghton County near Twin Lakes.
The weather service says Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula also got snow, averaging 6 to 8 inches with up to 20 inches reported in lake-effect zones.
The Roscommon County sheriff's department says 19-year-old Alexa Luck of Roscommon was killed in a crash on an icy road Tuesday.
