Black ice and high winds are making travel very dangerous in Kansas.

The Kansas Turnpike Authority said there is a lot of patchy ice that has
caused  several spinouts in Sumner and Butler Counties today.

Some vehicles have slid off the roadway.  One semi jackknifed after hitting a 
slippery patch of pavement.

At least two people were killed in weather-related accidents.

Turnpike officials say the road conditions won't improve until the weather 
warms up enough to melt the thin layer of ice.
