NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Emergency management officials say the latest winter storm has claimed three lives in Tennessee.

Tennessee Emergency Management Agency spokesman Dean Flener says all three victims died in weather-related traffic accidents. One in Wilson County killed a 35-year-old woman on Wednesday. On Thursday, an accident in Dickson County killed a 46-year-old man and one in Campbell County killed a 61-year-old man.

The agency did not release the names of the victims or details of the accidents.

This is the second wintry mix to blanket the state in recently. After the first storm hit Feb. 16, 30 people died from traffic accidents, hypothermia and a house fire.

The new storm has dumped up to 14 inches of sleet and snow in some parts of Tennessee, which remains in a state of emergency.
