Drivers stranded on I-95 for hours in northern Virginia

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (WWBT) – The Virginia Department of Transportation said it was working to reach drivers stranded on I-95 in northern Virginia on Monday evening.

Motorists are urged to avoid the area as additional resources are being sent to clear down felled trees and broken down vehicles.

Earlier today, all southbound lanes of I-95 in Stafford County were closed at km 136 near Centreport Parkway after a crash involving six tractor-trailers, according to NBC4. The area was cleared around 6 p.m. and VDOT said there were no injuries.

About an hour later, the department alerted drivers in the area as heavy snow continued to slow traffic near the Rappahannock River.

At around 9:00 p.m., drivers were still stranded in the northbound and southbound lanes in the Fredericksburg area. VDOT says he is aware and works to reach people. Officials say cameras in the area are down due to power outages, limiting their ability to confirm crash locations.
