Arctic blast hits Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Arctic cold front blasting into the state today has iced some roads in northeast Oklahoma, forced school closures and led to traffic accidents that killed two people and injured several others.

Those who died include a 65-year-old Big Cabin man who was riding in a tractor-trailer that collided with another tractor-trailer that had jackknifed on the Will Rogers Turnpike and a 3-year-old girl killed in a rollover accident on the Sand Springs Expressway in Tulsa.

The National Weather Service says temperatures across most of the state are in the teens or low 20s, with winds gusting to more than 20 mph in some locations.

The Tulsa and Union school districts already say they won't have classes tomorrow.

Many of the 172 prep basketball games scheduled for tomorrow night are also in danger of being called off.
