Snow storm causes chaos for travelers in Germany, Austria

Heavy snow caused travel chaos in parts of Germany and Austria as authorities closed roads and train routes because of avalanche danger and airports reported weather-related cancelations Saturday.

At least 120 flights were canceled for Saturday at the region's largest airport in Munich, a spokeswoman said, adding that the number could still increase.

There are also massive delays at the airport, with at least 70 flights taking off an hour or more behind schedule. The regular plan for Saturday included 850 departures.

German police said one person died and two people were seriously injured when their car skidded into oncoming traffic on icy roads near the town of Bad Toelz.

The airport in the Austrian city of Innsbruck also reported a "massive reduction in air traffic."
