Hundreds of drivers, including a US senator, were stranded overnight in the freezing cold on a Virginia highway after a severe snowstorm battered the region Monday.
A 50-mile stretch of Interstate 95 came to a standstill in both directions Monday afternoon when six tractor-trailers were involved in an accident — and it became impossible to move them as several inches of snow and ice accumulated.
No one was injured in the collision but it left hundreds of motorists stuck in frigid temps on the major US highway for “extraordinary” amounts of time, Virginia Department of Transportation engineer Marcie Parker said in a statement.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), who lives in Richmond, tweeted Tuesday morning that he was among those stranded.
State and local emergency crews were working early Tuesday to clear disabled vehicles.
