HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - The first significant wintry storm of the season dumped nearly a foot-and-a-half of snow on some parts of southeast Michigan, knocked out power to thousands and left roadways a mess.

National Weather Service meteorologist Sara Schultz says Sunday that Livingston County’s Howell received 16.8 inches of snow Saturday and nearby Hartland got 16 inches.

Schultz says “a band” of snow “set up and that area just got clobbered.”

The Saginaw News reports that a state police car was involved in a crash about 9 a.m. Sunday on an icy highway in Saginaw County.

Authorities also say slippery conditions may have led to a two-car crash that killed a 23-year-old man Saturday in Lowell Township, near Grand Rapids.

DTE Energy spokeswoman Stephanie Beres says roughly 40,000 customers were without electricity Sunday.
