State police finding big rigs abandoned on snowy highways (PHOTOS)
Even the biggest vehicles on the road aren't immune to the dangers of driving in blizzard conditions.
NJ State Police posted on Facebook Saturday, showing images of tractor trailers that were stuck in snow drifts and disabled along the state's major highways as a result of the winter weather.
"So, the troops at Perryville Station are encountering abandoned tractor-trailers along I-78. These ghostly images look like something out of a post-apocalyptic movie," Nj State Police said in a Facebook post.
The pics include the cab of a truck with snow piled up to the door. Other pics show trucks plowed in alongside the highway.
Police say that due to the weather and poor driving conditions, some trucks became stuck on highway off-ramps, causing them to be shut down until crews could help get the rigs moving again.
