DALLAS — An ice storm in north Texas has knocked out power to nearly 216,000 homes and businesses, canceled almost 1,000 flights and contributed to a fatal wreck.

Oncor on Friday reported electrical outages mainly in the Dallas area. A fire in an underground vault in downtown Dallas led to power cut to a five-block area, including City Hall, during repairs.

American Airlines and American Eagle on Friday canceled about 900 flights systemwide because of bad weather in Texas. Dallas-based Southwest Airlines canceled nearly 80 flights. Dallas Area Rapid Transit canceled rail service, switching travelers to DART buses.

Arlington police say a driver died Friday after his car hit a stopped truck. Police say inclement weather appears to have been a factor in the death of 29-year-old Chase Brandenburgh of Arlington.
