FOREST TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say that the severe weather and blowing snow are factors in the deaths of four people, including two students in a rural district northeast of Flint.

The Flint Journal says the students from the LakeVille Community Schools were killed in a crash Thursday in Genesee County’s Forest Township. Their names weren’t immediately released.

The Antrim County sheriff’s department says a car struck 85-year-old Carl Dewey as he crossed a road to get his mail Wednesday in Helena Township, about 30 miles northeast of Traverse City.

The Kalkaska County sheriff’s department says that 64-year-old Zane Chwastek of Bear Lake Township was using a snow blower in his driveway Wednesday when a car slid off the road and struck him.
