Authorities say icy roads have led to at least one fatal crash and numerous fender benders.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said 55-year-old Sherri Jones, of Sweet Springs, was killed around 12:20 p.m. Sunday when the sport utility vehicle in which she was riding slid off the side of a slush-covered stretch of Missouri 127 in Saline County. The SUV then struck a sign post, became airborne and overturned. The driver also suffered moderate injuries.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that a St. Charles County police officer was involved in a rollover accident and two other officers slid into ditches. None of them were hurt.

In the St. Louis suburb of Maryland Heights, roads were so slippery that two firefighters walked a woman to a hospital on a stretcher Sunday.
