The death toll from a powerful winter storm that pushed through the US Midwest into the north-east has risen to 12.
Officials in Indiana say a man and a woman were killed when the scooter they were riding went out of control on a snowy street on Boxing Day and they were hit by a pick-up truck.
Other deaths include a man checking on a disabled vehicle who was struck and killed in Pennsylvania and two people killed in crashes in Virginia.
The storm was dumping snow on parts of the north-east a day after it caused more than 1,600 flight cancellations and frustrated holiday travellers.
Despite the weather, no flights were delayed today in cities like New York, Philadelphia and Boston. The coast was seeing mostly cold rain, not snow.
