CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A West Virginia legislative candidate is the third person in the state reported to be killed in accidents related to weather from superstorm Sandy.

George Rose tells The Associated Press that his 60-year-old father, John Rose Sr., was checking fences on his deer farm in Barbour County on Tuesday when he was struck by a falling tree limb. He was a Republican candidate for the House of Delegates.

Barbour County Emergency Services Director Cindy Hart says another man in his 60s died Tuesday while shoveling snow.

The storm also was blamed for the death of a 40-year-old woman whose car collided with a cement truck Monday in Tucker County.
