Authorities believe the winter storm that dumped up to two feet of snow on parts of Virginia may have contributed to three deaths in that state.

Virginia State Police say 68-year-old Barbara Allen of Willis died on a highway in Carroll County. Police say Allen slid off the road on Route 664, striking a fence and an embankment.

In addition, authorities say another unidentified person died of exposure in southern Virginia, and that the weather may have contributed to another traffic death.

Virginia state police say they've responded to more than 4,000 traffic accidents and disabled vehicles since late Friday.
