Motorists are still stranded on I-95 since early Monday morning and this has been the Governor’s only response:
Go to the page and read the comments, many of the commenters are still stuck in the massive traffic jam near Fredericksburg that began on early Monday morning when numerous tractor-trailers caused a huge accident. Traffic has been backed up in both directions for 50 miles. Some people have given up, abandoned their cars, and walked down the highway to points unknown.
Northam has said “warming stations” were being opened but that does little good for those who are stuck in traffic and cannot move their cars. Some people have gone over 24 hours without food or water.
Northam says he has the national guard at his disposal but he has not explained why they have not been called in. As of this afternoon, the guard still has not been called. The Governor cannot say when the road will be cleared but VDOT is hoping to have the road cleared by tomorrow morning’s rush hour.
