Just call me a cynical independent thinker but IF the George Soros loving Virginia “government” had all the tax payer’s hard earned money Virginia spent taring down American Hero’s Statues, perhaps Virginia would be able to take care of the taxpayer in an emergency!
The Ole Dog!
Update (1315ET): A large stretch of Interstate 95 south of the nation’s capital remained in gridlock when tractor-trailers crashed in a winter storm on Monday. Hundreds of motorists have been stranded on the highway for more than 17 hours. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has given no timeline on when the clusterf**k will be resolved.
CBS4 News in Miami’s Jim DeFede is one of the motorists stuck in the mess. He said, “somebody better do something because there are cars and families just trapped here,” adding that he hasn’t seen a state trooper nor tow truck in hours.
DeFede provided another update saying he’s “been in the same spot in Virginia – just south of Quantico – for at least 17 or 18 hours.”
Motorists were so desperate and hungry that they begged for food. A bread truck reportedly handed out food to families.
VDOT is having trouble clearing the roads because so many people walked off the interstate and abandoned their vehicles to seek shelter.
Hundreds of motorists have been stranded on Interstate 95 in northern Virginia for at least 15 hours after the region was hammered with a major snowstorm on Monday, according to local news WTOP.
Traffic on I-95 came to a standstill Monday between Ruther Glen, Virginia, in Caroline County and exit 152 in Dumfries, Prince William County, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) said.
“We know many travelers have been stuck on Interstate 95 in our region for extraordinary periods of time over the past 24 hours, in some cases since Monday morning. This is unprecedented, and we continue to steadily move stopped trucks to make progress toward restoring lanes. In addition to clearing the trucks, we are treating for snow and several inches of ice that has accumulated around them to ensure that when the lanes reopen, motorists can safely proceed to their destination,” said Marcie Parker, the agency’s Fredericksburg District engineer.
