TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities in Kansas have reported at least two killed in weather-related crashes as a winter storm swept the Midwest this weekend.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 62-year-old Bradley Horton of Topeka died after his pickup truck skidded Friday on the snow-slicked Kansas Turnpike and hit a concrete barrier. Investigators say Horton was not wearing a seat belt.

The patrol says another crash Friday night involving two semitrailers in snowy conditions in central Kansas killed a 41-year-old driver from Mexico. That man’s name has not been released.
