About this Article

Hundreds of people spent a cold night trapped on Interstate 65 in central Alabama as a winter storm dumped snow around the Southeast and caused at least one death. Hundreds of cars and 18-wheelers were at a standstill on the highway early Friday, County emergency management director Phyllis Little said. "There are hundreds of vehicles on the interstate northbound," Little said Friday morning. "Until we get enough sunlight or warmer temperatures I don't see it changing."
