ST. LOUIS (AP) — A dangerous mix of snow, ice and sleet hammered southern Missouri for a second straight day on Friday, causing numerous accidents, including a wreck that killed a small-town mayor.

Missouri was among many states under winter storm and ice warnings, and the state was getting a slippery mix of precipitation.

There were reports of sleet a quarter-inch thick in the Cape Girardeau area, with snow on top of it. Some areas had up to 10 inches of snow on the ground by Friday morning, with more on the way. Making matters worse was bitter cold, with wind chills dipping to near zero.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Granby Mayor Ronald Arnall died Thursday afternoon when his truck ran off of Highway 39 and struck a tree. He was 64.
