TENNESSEE (AP) -

Authorities say a couple was in a vehicle that slid off an icy road and plummeted down a 300-foot embankment in Tennessee, killing the woman driver.

Carter County Sheriff Dexter Lunceford said Stacy Sherrill was driving a vehicle with her husband riding along when it slid off the road. Her husband survived the crash, but it took him several hours to climb the embankment and report the accident.

At least five people have died in storm-related crashes in Tennessee, Kentucky and North Carolina. Officials are warning people to stay off roads as the blizzard makes its way across the East Coast.
