DE SOTO, Missouri - Authorities are blaming two road deaths on a massive spring storm system that is dumping snow and rain from the Rocky Mountains to the Rust Belt.

Minnesota State Police say 16-year-old Jonathon Pohlen of Houlton, Wis., was killed Thursday afternoon when he lost control on snowy Interstate 94 in eastern Minnesota, crossed over the median and collided with a truck's trailer.

The National Weather Service in Chanhassen says the storm could dump up to a foot of snow in northeastern Minnesota by Friday.

Meanwhile, flash floods are being blamed for the death of an 80-year-old motorist south of St. Louis.

Police in De Soto say the woman's car was swept Thursday off Highway E into Joachim Creek.

The woman's name had not been released Thursday night.
