Truckers lose time, money as ice leaves them stranded
Time is money according to the truck drivers we talked with who were stranded in Beaumont overnight. A lot of both were wasted.
Many truckers from the west coast had been driving across the country with no problems.
That is until they arrived in Beaumont.
That's where many of the roads were iced over causing traffic jams.
The Petro Truck Stop on Walden near Interstate 10 was filled to capacity, and Ford Park was also housing semi trucks.
Many of the drivers were frustrated, but made the most of their stay in Beaumont.
Even after Interstate 10 opened around 10:30 this morning, it took several hours for the semi trucks to get back on the road.
According to one of the truckers, they were packed in like sardines.
