Around 12:30 p.m., a semi-trailer truck buckled after trying to avoid an accident after the National Weather Service at Grand Rapids warned drivers to beware of “dangerous driving conditions in parts of West Michigan.”

US 131 was shut down for several hours after “numerous crashes” when rescue workers supported the scene and took care of several injuries. None was life-threatening.

Earlier this week, hundreds of drivers in Virginia were stranded on I-95 at around 8:30 a.m. on Monday for 27 hours when six tractor units buckled in the winter storm and set off a chain reaction, resulting in a day-long pile-up along 50. led one-mile stretch of I-95 south of Washington, DC.

There was 14 inches of snow in the Fredericksburg area as the temperatures dropped to the low teenage temperatures. Several drivers have had to sit in the cool after parking their vehicles or running out of gas while sitting in a traffic collapse.

Some drivers even left their vehicles on the freeway and went to unfamiliar places.

Parts of the motorway were blocked by fallen trees and disabled vehicles. The crews worked tirelessly to clear the streets, but most were stranded for hours.

Outgoing Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was convicted of failing to use the National Guard to save the hundreds of motorists who were left with no food or water in freezing conditions by recommending the “unusual weather” to the blind Blamed authorities.

“We must all understand that this was an incredibly unusual occurrence,” Northam said at the conference, noting that the winter storm started as rain on Monday morning, which meant the roads could not be pre-treated the night before.

But Meera and Raghavendra Rao, who were stuck 30 meters past an exit on the interstate for 16 hours, told AP, “In the 16 hours we were stuck, not a police officer (officer) has come.”

“Since we are in the most progressive country in the world, nobody knew how to clear a trail for all of us to get out of this mess?” asked a frustrated Meera.

However, Northam defended his decision not to activate the Virginia National Guard or to declare a state of emergency, citing the difficulty of getting workers and equipment to where they needed to be through snow and ice.

About 40 cars were involved in a giant mile in Michigan (pictured) after a semi-trailer truck buckled on US 131 at around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday

He also claimed that a state of emergency, which would normally be declared hours or days before an event to allow additional flexibility in how to respond, would have done no good.

These crashes happen just as another snowstorm is expected in Nashville after New York in the coming days, leaving 20 million people under winter weather warnings.

New York City, which missed the blizzard earlier this week, is expected to grow two to four inches by Friday.

New Jersey and Long Island could see up to five inches in gusty winds.

There could also be rain showers in the tri-border region on Sunday.
