Suburban Man Dies While Shoveling Snow

At least two people have died while out in the heavy snowfall that's moved across parts of the Midwest.

A spokesman for Edward Hospital in suburban Naperville says a man in his 60s suffered a fatal heart attack Friday morning while shoveling snow. The National Weather Service reported snowfall of at least 8 inches in Naperville.

One death happened as crashes during the snowfall snarled highways across the southern tier of Michigan on Friday. Police say the person was killed when a semitrailer didn't stop in time and crushed a car that was stopped in traffic on U.S. 23 near Flint, Michigan.

A Michigan State Police trooper also was taken to a hospital after a pickup truck lost control and slammed into his squad car while he was stopped on Interstate 94 northeast of Detroit.
