Drone Footage Shows Hundreds of Stranded Cars on Virginia's I-95

Cars started moving on Interstate 95 near Stafford, Virginia, in the morning hours of January 4 after severe weather left the highway blocked overnight.

Hundreds of drivers were stuck due to “disabled vehicles and downed trees," the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) said after a major snowstorm hit the area.

The VDOT said on Tuesday that a number of roads were still closed, with crews mobilizing to direct people on alternate routes.
