Ezequiel Perez, 22, was on his way to Stinnett from Borger in a 1999 Honda 4-door car when he drifted onto the guard rail at the Canadian River bridge outside of town, according to a report by Senior Trooper Chris Ray of the DPS.

It was hard not to notice the drastic differences in Sundayâ€™s snowfall throughout various parts of town.

According to James, the reason for the snowâ€™s behavior lies in two factors: local plants such as the Agrium nitrogen production plant and wind direction.
