RUSTON, La. (KSLA) - As the effects of the winter storm continue to be felt, many drivers have been stranded on highways due to impassable roads covered in ice.

One such driver, Luz Cruzatte, was stuck on I-20 W near Ruston for more than 24 hours, the driver says. Cruzatte is headed to Temple, Texas and was caught in the bad conditions.

Cruzatte says they have no food, but has a bottle of water that they’re trying to drink slowly.

Cruzatte sent KSLA a Facebook message just before 9 a.m. Friday, Feb. 19 saying traffic was moving again.
