At least 5 deaths in Virginia tied to massive winter storm

wlni-defaultRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Authorities say the number of storm-related deaths in Virginia has risen to five in the wake of the massive snowfall along the East Coast. A man was killed on Saturday in a single-vehicle crash in Virginia Beach that police blamed on speed and icy road conditions, and Virginia Tech filmmaker Jerry Scheeler died Friday while shoveling snow outside his new house in Daleville, local news media reported Sunday. On Saturday, the state medical examiner’s office confirmed three other storm deaths. They included a single-vehicle crash in Chesapeake and deaths in Hampton and southwest Virginia from hypothermia.
