MEMPHIS, IN (WAVE) - Southern Indiana counties, some of which declared a state of emergency, saw the highest snow totals during Friday's winter storm.
Four to six inches fell across the area, leading to several trucks sliding off the roads and forcing other drivers to wait for better weather at highway gas stations.
The snow, which started earlier in southern Indiana than in areas south of Louisville, had drivers traveling much slower than the speed limit on Interstate 65. Some reported that their commute took double or even triple the usual amount of time.
"We could probably be on the road if it weren't for the big trucks," said Garrett Little, as he waited out the storm at a truck stop along I-65 at Memphis Road. "They don't drive cautiously."
One truck got stuck at the northbound I-65 on-ramp from Memphis Road, blocking the ramp for about an hour in the late afternoon until a tow truck driver got it back on the road.
