MILWAUKEE — A snowstorm turned roads slippery across much of Wisconsin and led many schools to close for the day or send students home early.

A winter storm warning remained in effect until 9 p.m. Monday over much of eastern Wisconsin, where total accumulations of 4 to 7 inches were expected.

Flights kept taking off from Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee during heavy snowfall in the afternoon, though nearly half had either been delayed, rescheduled or canceled by about 3:30 p.m.

Six Hartford Union High School students were injured when their bus left a snow-covered road and crashed into a tree.

A Milwaukee County sheriff's deputy who was already responding to a crash was hurt when a vehicle traveling too fast for the conditions slammed into the back of his squad car.
