The Nation

February 11, 1986

A storm sweeping eastward from the southern Plains brought snow and freezing rain to wide areas of the nation's midsection. Roads from Texas to Tennessee were icy, and many schoolchildren and adults stayed home. Eight people were reported killed and one person was missing and presumed dead in weather-related accidents, authorities said. Countless highway mishaps occurred as trucks jackknifed on slick overpasses and cars slid into each other, police said.
