Dangerous Road Conditions May Linger In Parts Of NC

Yesterday's dangerous driving conditions could linger through this morning and into the weekend.

Forecasters say cold weather overnight could make for slick roads this morning -- especially in the Triad. Two people died in traffic accidents blamed on the mix of winter weather that coated the Carolinas yesterday.

Now the National Weather Service is predicting another blast of freezing precipitation. Forecasters say a mix of freezing rain and sleet could arrive Sunday.

Troopers responded to more than 200 calls for traffic problems yesterday in the Raleigh-Durham area and more than 50 in the Triad.

The state Highway Patrol says Jose Guijarro of Goldsboro died when he apparently lost control of his pickup truck on U-S 264 in Nash County. Jeanette Coble died in a separate head-on collision on Alamance Church Road south of Greensboro.
