Driver killed on Milwaukee County interstate

(AP) -- A driver was killed on a slick interstate in Milwaukee County Wednesday when he lost control of his car and skidded in front of a semi.

The sheriff's department says the 51-year-old man died at the scene. The driver of the semi tried to brake, but wasn't able to avoid the crash.

Hundreds of schools across southern Wisconsin closed Wednesday as snow continues to pile up from a major winter storm.

Forecasters expect 18 inches or more in some areas before it's all over later Wednesday.

The state's largest school district, Milwaukee Public Schools, also decided to close its schools and offices. That involves 87,000 children and 14,000 employees.

The heavy snow is coming in waves with a round of heavy snow and blowing moving from the west to east Wednesday.
