INDIANAPOLIS — Driving is treacherous around Indiana from several inches of snowfall, with more than two dozen counties issuing travel advisories and at least two crash deaths.

Most of Indiana was under a winter weather advisory Thursday from the National Weather Service, with 5.5 inches of snow reported in Indianapolis and 6 inches in Rushville.

The crash in central Indiana's Tipton County happened when a 19-year-old from Florida lost control of an SUV late Wednesday and it overturned into a field. Police say William Lamoreaux of Plant City, Fla., died at the scene and a 14-year-old cousin suffered a broken wrist.

LaPorte County police say 36-year-old John Kallok of Griffith died Wednesday when his pickup truck slid into the path of a charter bus on U.S. 20 in northern Indiana.
