Hundreds of Motorists Trapped Overnight on I-95 in Virginia

Parts of Interstate 95 remained closed in Virginia on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 4, a day after a major snowstorm stranded hundreds of motorists on the highway.

Monday’s winter storm dropped over a foot of snow in some parts of Virginia, causing power outages and bringing traffic on the busy interstate to a standstill. Among those stranded overnight was Virginia Sen Tim Kaine, who tweeted that he was still on I-95 late on Tuesday morning.
